    I started TriNessa to deal with an acne problem. On the first try, I became depressed and my periods had more cramping. After about three months, I switched to a different pill, but I started having break-through bleeding. I am back on TriNessa and have been for over a year. I no longer have mood/swings, and my cramping is controllable. It works just fine now.

    I had been taking Orthotricylcen LO for 4 years, and I was very satisfied. However it started making me bleed during my ovulating periods. My doctor informed me that I could be coming immune to the pill. So they switched me to the Tri-nessa. Horrible cramps and head aches, the whole time I have my period (never experienced that with Ortho). I want to switch back but not if I'm immune to it!

    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 have discharge daily that requires me to wear the panty liner, mood swings, NO sex drive and difficulty having an orgasm during sex. I don't know if ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    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
