Reviews for Trivora
For Birth Control "I’m so ready to get off these pills I’m definitely making a doctor’s appointment I’m nauseous on the stomach, my heart is beating way too fast it fluctuates to high and low and having shortness of breath I wouldn’t recommend anyone to take Trivora pills it’s the worst pill I ever took I never been on any kind of birth control I’m new to it I wish I never got on birth control if it’s going to cause me all this trouble"
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"
"I have been on this pill for almost a month now. I don't really like it that much because of the side effects ive been having. Its also the first time that i have ever been on birth control. Im hoping that it will get better."
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 "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."
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 Birth Control "first birth control ... I've had no side effects, but I do have change in emotions really quick but other then that it's all good actually increase my sex drive... haven't gotten pregnant to weight gain and no acne just really emotional"
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 "It did the job for the most part which was preventing pregnancy. It didn’t really effect my mood. It lowered my libido and caused major vaginal dryness(it was like the Sahara down there) which made sex hurt very bad and I would tear down there and bleed. That was the main reason I got off of it because I throughly enjoyed sex before but this pill just ruined it for me. It also caused me to bleed heavily on my period and my cramps were worse on the pill than off of it."
For Birth Control "Have been taking Trivora for 8 years straight and never had problems until about 2 years ago. I went from having a wild sex drive no man could ever keep up with to absolutely zero sex drive and can’t get physically aroused anymore and despite working an extremely physically active full time job and going to the gym I had severe weight gain (gained over 30 pounds) and despite staying at the gym and working out an extra hour or two each day and completely faithful to my strict diet I could not shed any of the weight AT ALL. Got all kinds of tests done with my doctor and ruled everything out except for the birth control as to the very weird sudden extreme weight gain. I have to change to a different pill, hopefully a different pill will help this!!"
"Horrible birth control. Made me literally insane, crying everyday for several hours and becoming angry over minor things. Also gave me horrible acne. I am switching back to my old pill immediately. Beware when taking!"
For Birth Control "I’ve been on trivora since I was 16 years old and I’m now 33 years old. In which, I haven’t experience any bad side effects from this medicine. I would highly recommend trivora."
For Birth Control "I have been taking Trivora for over a year and it is wonderful. I have experienced no negative side effects. I would recommend it because it works beautifully for me."
For Birth Control "Blood vomitting. Not good for new customers. Abdominal severe pain."
For Birth Control "Horrible side effects, gave me acne, a lot of bloating, nauseous, migraine and water retention. I gain 10 pounds using it. I don't recommend it."
For Birth Control "This pill made me severely sick.. I couldn't move without vomiting"
For Birth Control "HATE IT! I've been in this medicine for 3 months now and I've balled like a baby everyday. I feel like I have no control over my emotions. I do not recommend to any female!"
For Birth Control "Horrible for me. I encountered weight gain, severe acne, and breast tenderness. I ended up switching to another birth control and had no issues afterwards."
For Birth Control "On Trivora I had NAUSEA -- ALL DAY EVERY DAY. MAJOR MOODINESS. This pill made me miserable."
