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 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.

I'm relieved that other people are having the same effects I have been: depression and mood swings. I thought maybe it was me but I feel much better now that it could be the pill. Also I have alot of discharge, all the time which is really wierd.
