I took Estrostep for over 10 years and loved it, but it was too expensive. 8 months ago I switched to Trilegest FE expecting it to be the same as EstroStep, but I have had horrible side effects. I experience full PMS symptoms during the blue pills (9 days): super moody, easily irritated, bloated, gassy, pregnancy symptoms, etc. I wish I could afford to go back to Estrostep.

Immediately after switching to this pill I began to break out everywhere on my chin and cheeks; I have never broken out on my cheeks before. This pill is absolutely terrible, I have cramps and constantly feel bloated during each period. Would not recommend!!!

This medication helped with the pain of my periods and made them lighter in general, however, after about seven months of taking it, I have experienced worsening depression and worsening suicidal thoughts. It made no changes to my acne, either. I am looking into changing medications, as I am not benefiting enough from this pill.

I started this pill after an abnornally long period. It made me dizzy, light headed, and short of breath. When I got my first period while on the pill, the cramps were worse than I’ve ever had. I could not move. Overall, it stopped the long period but the things that came with it were not worth it.

I was overall unsuccessful with a few pills before getting on this one and it's worked best for me so far. Periods are reduced to only 2-3 days of light flow and cramps are bearable where they weren't before. I put on around 10 lbs since beginning birth control around a year ago and I've been able to lose weight while on this pill. My mood more or less returned to how it usually was before taking any pills but I do tend to get more randomly emotional when I'm PMSing than before. I haven't noticed any negative skin changes. One pill isn't perfect for everyone but 4 months in and I have no complaints!
