I have been more or less on the Pill for 16 years -- starting at age 18 and now at 34. And, for pretty much the entire time I was on some form of Ortho Tri-cyclin. During that time, I had no problems. I love the Ortho Tri. In fact, I had great skin, no break-through bleeding, no pregnancy scares and very regular. I was like clock-work. During my week, I would start my period by 9am on Wednesday an ... Show Full Comment

I have been on this b/c for over 6 yrs after the birth of my daughter. I've had to wear a panty liner due to discharge since the birth of my daughter b/c I thought it was due to having a child but now I realize it could be this b/c pill.

I initially took this purely as birth control. I now continue because it has made my periods significantly shorter and less painful, which has always been a problem I just dealt with in the past. I haven't had any of the side effects others have mentioned, most of which seem to be the same side effects complained of with any form of birth control. Birth control pills, by their nature, are forc ... Show Full Comment

I would not reccommend this birth control to anyone. I am 21 and have been the same weight since the beginning of high school. Within a week of taking it, I had gained 10 pounds. My cramps were even worse when I was on it, and I was extremely moody. I also know why they call it birth control- I HAVE NO SEX DRIVE! (funny but not really) this generic brand is terrible.

In the past I've used OTC and tri-sprintec, and this is the first time I've used Trinessa. I am stopping using it because after some research online I've figured out it's probably the cause of my recent mood swings (which seem to change week by week). My moods have been a source of tension in my relationship with my boyfriend, so I'm not the only one affected.
