    I am 26, active, and healthy. I tried Loestin for 3 cycles and bled every single day so my OB switched me to Trinessa (Ortho Tri-Cyclen). In the 4 cycles taking Trinessa, I would start my period during the last week of active pills and it would continue through the duration of the inactive week. I gained 15 lbs, started getting acne, and became an emotional wreck. It was to the point where my boyf ... Show Full Comment

    This pill worked in that I have been on it for several months and did not get pregnant. But - the side effects, oh my goodness, the side effects. I went from being a pretty easy going person to totally crying at any given moment. I would get depressed fro no reason at all, and would burst out into tears over nothing. I literally felt chest pains coming from anxiety after taking this devil pill. ... Show Full Comment

    Doctor switched me from Orthotricylin without telling me. Nauseous after 3 days. What a pain! No, I shouldn't have to wait 2 years for things to go to normal!!! Ortho..had NO side effects for me. Health industry reputation can't possibly get worse. I actually don't believe the positive reviews. I think they are fake.

    I have been taking Trinessa for about two months now and have had zero issues. The first couple weeks I had slight nausea and mood swings, nothing crazy, probably my body getting used to it. I haven't gained any weight (but I am a college athlete so I do exercise quite a bit). I have noticed my hunger is more often than before but I just snack a little to relieve it. I watch what I eat so I do ... Show Full Comment

    This pill overall sucks. Because if insurance reasons they put me on the generic which is the generic of orthotricyclen lo which is what i took before we tried to get pregnant. Worked ok for the first minth, then i started having the nasty side effects. To much bleeding in between and extreme mood swings. Luckily by some miracle the name brand is. Ow covered under my insurance. I have to much goin ... Show Full Comment
