I was prescribed this birth control by my doctor, not only for preventing pregnancy, but because of me severe migraines. I took this medication for 3 months and never missed a dose.

I have been taking Trinessa for several years and my pharmacy gave me Tri-previfem cause its cheaper. Since going on this med I have had some dramatic mood swings.

I have noticed an extreme tenderness in my breasts that I've never experienced before, along with a 10 lb weight gain. I do p90X 4-5 times per week and I'm still gaining weight.

I have been on this BC for ONE MONTH and have had the worst experience. I was originally on Ortho Lo but because this generic brand was less pricey, I switched. MISTAKE.

I have been on BC for 7 years and haven't run into issu ... Show Full Comment
