I'm 20 years old, and since taking tri previfem I've had basically the same period as ever, 3-4 days and a normal flow. But almost immediately I had strong feelings of depression and my emotions are going haywire. I have also noticed weight gain that isn't too severe (5 lbs maybe), but it's only been two months.

Started taking this pill in August. Ever since I've been bery moody, had severe memory loss, gained 15 pounds, and my vision has become very bad. I always feel like I'm in a dream and don't remember things that I'm doing. I asked my doctor to switch me and they didn't. Very dissatisfied.
