    I began tri-previfem early august and since then I have already gained 10 pounds from using this. It is most certainly from this birth control cause it has taken me years to even gain a couple pounds. Also, it has made my period last longer and heavier.

    I JUST started taking this medicine. I am on my second week and 4th day. I can tell the difference... I have gained a few pounds (Not a problem trying to gain weight anyway xD) BUT I will CRY over NOTHING. It has made me depressed, but I am slowly coming out of it :) I am going to continue to take it and just hope it passes :) But no other complaints so far!:D

I have been on this new BC for about half of a year now and have been noticing serious changes and problems with my body/emotions. My skin began breaking out with terrible acne, even large acne cysts underneath my skin. Before, ... Show Full Comment

    I switched over to Tri-Privifem because my insurance covered it. After only being on it for 4 months my blood pressure went up VERY high. I went off this medication because of the blood pressure and I was noticing some abnormal mood swings. After going off this I had terrible depression, anxiety, fear, a sense of hopelessness and so on. I would be very cautious before going on BC, it messes with y ... Show Full Comment
