For Birth Control: “I've been taking Trivora for a couple of years now. It's great except I have an EXTREMELY noticeable decrease in sex drive. There is a huge difference between the three weeks I'm taking active pills and the one week that I'm not. Then again... Maybe that's just me. Kind of a catch 22, isn't it? If I wanted my normal sex drive back, I'd have to go off of the pill.”

For Birth Control: “I recently stopped taking trivora after using it for 2 years. It gave me a reoccuring bacterial vagenosis and a yeast infection. It also made my anxiety really bad and gave me mild depression. I also gained a lot of weight on the pill throughout the years. It was really effective in preventing pregnancy though, I was having unprotected sex with a partner for a year and did not get pregnant. Although I would say all the cons outweigh the pros. Would not recommend this drug for the reason being mental sanity.”

For Birth Control: “This birth control may not work for everyone but it worked for me. I was having terrible cramps and after taking trivora they were much better. I also did not notice any changes in my mood like I had with other types of birth control.”

For Birth Control: “I've been taking this medication for two and a half years now- with no ill side effects other than slight decrease in sex drive. It has significantly reduced menstrual cramps, so ibuprofen is only needed occasionally. Light cramps occur a day or two before my period, followed by light to moderate cramps on the first day. No change in appetite, or increase in headaches. Most of all, it's effective.”

For Birth Control: “so far this is my first month to take this type of birth control pills. I'm hoping that I don't experience any side effects, any of the bad ones. I used to take birth control pills years ago and my blood pressure was high so the doctor took me off. I hope that this type of pill will do the job for me. will keep up to date on the progress”

For Birth Control: “Been on this birth control since I was 17. I'm 23 now. Never had any bad side effects. The reason I began taking it is I used to have unbearable cramps every month that would keep me in bed. If I started my period at school or work, I had to go home because it was so intense. I was recommended to try birth control pills because of it. I also have not gotten pregnant with my long term relationship boyfriend. Works great for me!”

For Birth Control: “Trivora was very effective in preventing pregnancy. However almost immediately after I began pack 1 I experienced yeast infections due to the high levels of hormones. The symptoms went away once I took some over the counter creams. I'm currently on the end of pack 3 and I'm getting off of this pill because I've experienced bloating, stomach cramps and really really bad GAS! I've never had a gas problem until I began trivora. So this gas cramping occurs during random times daily.. And it's a problem! So I can't wait to try something different.”

For Endometriosis: “I started taking this birth control when I was 17 and it really changed my life. Before I started taking it I had horrible cramps right when my period started that would keep my in bed. I also had horrible PMS and would gain so much water weight before my period (up to five pounds). My PMS would also last up to week. I think it did an excellent job of leveling out my hormones throughout the month. Although I did still have minor PMS symptoms they were not nearly as bad as before I started the pill. Anyways, I recently had to go off the Trivora because I have been experiencing minor hive breakouts in the week leading up to my period, (so the doctors are trying to figure out if it has to do with the pill, or if another pill would help me more with this). However, we have not figured it out yet. If I can't find another pill that works for me I would definitely consider going back on Trivora again.”

For Birth Control: “I started Trivora about 8 months ago and it works very very well especially in preventing pregnancy however I am taking it more so to help control my horomones and periods which is doing exactly that. The bad side is the yeast infections and increases in anxiety which I am now taking medicine for.”

For Birth Control: “I had to take trivora because my hormones were out of whack and my period didn’t happen for three months because of it. The first month I took trivora I got my period back and it’s been good to me for the past 7 months. My period changed to be even lighter with almost no cramps but I didn’t have a troubled period before. Would recommend. No noticeable side effects besides getting extremely emotional before my period”

For Birth Control: “At first I liked this pill. It gave me boobs and kept me from getting pregnant. About a year in I started getting recurrent UTIs that I later discovered were caused by recurrent BV and yeast infections that I should not have been having. I'm now having intense mood swings I've never experienced and find myself feeling out of breath hopeless, a depressing feeling I've never had before. I also had zero vaginal moisture while taking it and had frequent random spotting. I stopped taking it yesterday and made an appointment to switch forms.”
