I have been in Ortho Tricylin Lo for a couple of years with no problems at all. I was just recently given Trinessa lo because the pharmacy said there was no reason i couldnt get the generic. I've been on it for 10 days and i'm nothing but a bloated, tired, grumpy mess.

I took this birth control for about 4 months, and I didn't totally hate it at first. I bloated immediately and gained 5 pounds but I was expecting that. Sex with my boyfriend was as great as ever. However, by month three things took a horrible turn. I was crying randomly, I felt empty and sad frequently. My libido COMPLETELY disappeared, which can only be explained by the hormones in this pill ... Show Full Comment
