    I have been on trinessa for about 3-4 years and it has been great. My periods are light and last 5 days I only have cramps the day before and the first day of my period. It has kept my face clear, although i didnt have acne before, and I have never noticed extreme mood swings. I am petite so I was hoping it would promote weight/breast gain but it did not. Overall a very good BCP!

    I have been on quite a variety of different oral contraceptions over the past 17 years. Trinessa is my favorite. It was suggested to me by my doctor 3 years ago when she was trying to find me the most affordable pill as I did not have health insurance. I was very pleased with how clear my skin was while using this product, compared to other products (including the original Ortho Tri Cyclen). I lat ... Show Full Comment

    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 eat clean and do 30-60 minute intense workouts daily and i couldn't figure out why i looked so bloated and the scale ... Show Full Comment

    If I could give this 0 stars I would. I went to pick up a refill at the pharmacy and instead of my usual Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo prescription, I was given this nightmare. I took TriNessa for three months. I bled EVERY day those three months, I felt depressed and felt like I could hurt someone because of the mood swings. When it was time for my period, I had cramps so bad they would radiate to my back ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on this pill for 3 weeks now and it has been the worst experience! I was on Ortho Tri-Cyclen which was amazing, but due to a pharmacy switch I had to switch pills. I started school 3 weeks ago and have already missed 4 times do to vomiting, I've never been so sick on a pill before. I've been having the worst break outs which normally never happen, I've also been extremely ... Show Full Comment
