It works perfectly. I've been on it for two months so far. The only thing that would be wrong with it is that my acne got worse and the vaginal discharge is crazy. Plus I get vaginal odor too. But besides this, I haven't had any of the crazy reactions (mood swings, weight gain, etc.) that everyone else has. If anything I've lost some weight. I'm sticking with it for now, just becau ...

Trinessa has turned my life into a complete horror show. I have been taking OrthoTriCyclen for 15 years with NO problems whatsoever. None. Recently, my insurance sent me this generic from my mail order pharmacy. No big deal- I have taken several different generic versions of this over the years with no side effects at all. It took me several months to realize it was my birth control, as it di ... Show Full Comment

This birth control works great! I was taking Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo but generics are cheaper on my plan so Dr. switched me to this. I didn't experience any of the horror-story side effects I keep hearing about with this drug-in fact, my periods are much shorter with this (by 2 days!!) and the cute pastel yellow compact doesn't hurt either. It's basically the same as ortho tri cylclen lo f ... Show Full Comment

I have been satified with this drug for the simple fact that it is keeping me from becoming pregnant, but I have been having some serious side effects. Anxiety attacks, heart issues, and I am so moody. I am going to stop taking this drug asap! I have been on it for a year and the symptoms didn't start showing up until 9 months after starting it. I am just up and down with my emotions all t ... Show Full Comment

I had been on Ortho-Tricyclen for almost ten years before I switched to this about a year and a half ago. Trinessa is just as effective and I don't have any side effects. My cycle was kinda weird when I made the transition but after a month, it was fine again. I would highly recommend this, plus it is much cheaper at the pharmacy.
