I've never been on birth control before and after this I don't think I want to be. The side effects for this drug are aweful! I've never had acne until taking trinessa. My breasts have increased at least a cup size and are constantly tender (I found it interesting that the size went down the one week I wasn't taking the pill. The worst part is I am constantly depressed, weepy and g ... Show Full Comment

Just started taking this pill. I have noticed bizarre cramps that ARE really painful and light headaches that have the potential to be bad, but my body still has to get used to it, plus I took it on day 1 start of my period so its possibly just my period causing the issues. I think people are hypocondriacs seriously. yours minds play tricks on you after reading the "side effect" insert. ... Show Full Comment

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
