Reviews for Tri-Linyah

Kayla49289 May 13, 2016

“I started taking this pill about a year ago and I LOVE it. I originally went on it for sever acne and it completely cleared up. I read all this stuff about people gaining weight but I've maintained the same weight I've had for 3 years now. Also I haven't got pregnant which is the most important thing!”

“I started Tri-linyah 3 months ago for hormonal cystic acne that was spreading and getting worse by the day. After 2 months noticed a difference and now after 3 months I am almost 98% clear. I think by month 4 I will be 100%. I only have some scars right now but very little texture. I also have not gotten pregnant. I have had NO negative side effects whatsoever in fact I was extremely depressed even suicidal before taking Tri Linyah and now I hardly feel sad or emotional unless there is a good reason. Overall very pleased!!”

“took Tri-Linyah for 3 years (about 5 years ago) the reason I took is was only to clear my skin!! After I stopped using it, my skin was the worst it’s even been. I had breakouts all over my face as well as my neck and jawline. I didn’t want to go back on birth control thinking that was the root cause. For three years, I tried to clear my skin by eating healthier, trying out different skin care brands/products, getting prescription creams, or going more natural (no makeup). Generally, a lot of research was done. In the end nothing worked. Every time my period came around, all my efforts to keep my skin clear disappeared. The hormonal acne was no joke. I realized nothing will work because my natural body was out of balance. I decided to go back on birth control after trying out a different prescribed cream. Currently, it’s been two weeks since I started the cream and one week since I started taking birth control. My skin is clearing up fast, besides the ones on my jawline.”

“I have... Or should I say had clear skin, from time to time I would have gotten a zit or two. Now however I have tiny bumps all over my face due to this birth control. I'm highly disappointed although my period is much lighter, it doesn't help the fact that my face is breaking out terribly; It's only causing me to be stressed and depressed, I'd rather bleed through tampons.”

“I have been taking trilinyah for 8 months now and it has worked GREAT for my acne. It took about 4 months to finally clear it up and haven’t had much of a problem since. The only down side I’ve notice to Tri-Linyah is the changes in mood. I am super irritable and have mood swings a lot and am very emotional all the time. It’s so bad that I’m seriously considering not taking it any more and just dealing with my horrible acne. Everyone is different though!”

“I have been using tri-linyah birth control for over 2 years now and I like it a lot. There are some pros and cons like with any medication. For my acne, it works SUPER well. I used to have horrible uncontrolled acne and this I wouldn’t say “cleared” up my skin, but definitely keeps it under control. I have one pimple here and there but definitely not when I used to have breakouts all over my face off the birth control. It keeps my periods light and my cramps to a minimum. The only downside and I don’t know if this is just a personal problem, are my mood swings. I get super super depressed around when my periods supposed to start and I think the birth control heightens my emotions”

“Horrible!!! This birth control pills caused me to have an upset stomach every day. Then came the mood swings and emotional episodes. And it also caused me to have severe anxiety attacks so I quit taking it.”

“I have been taking Tri-Linyah for a year now. When I first started the pill I threw up the first few days (which is to be expected) and the following few months I had terrible acne. I knew that it would take around 6 months for my body to adjust so I gave it time and I’m so glad I did. The acne slowly became less and less and now it’s very rare that I ever have a break out. It keeps my skin under control very well. Also, my period is much more bearable and I know the exact day that it comes now. My only complaint is that I still have a very awful cramps the first and second day of my period. But it’s controlled everything else + I haven’t gotten pregnant! So it’s a win in my book. Don’t give up on it :)”

“I have been taking TRI-LINYAH for a few months. Prior to this pill I had completely clear skin, and HORRIBLE periods!!! Now it's the opposite my face is covered in acne but my periods are AMAZING.. I'm kind of disappointed about the fact I have to choose clear skin over painless periods.”

“I have been on this pill Tri-Linyah for almost 3 months but no longer because I could not bear it. The side effects I had was I went from no acne to moderate acne, keeping the same exact skin routine and diet. My period was also heavier. At least it didn’t cause water retention”

“I just started taking this. I am now on week 4 and it is bitter sweet so far. My period has been abnormal (about 2 years without a period) and my doc prescribed this pill to me. It's "sweet" because I got my period. Not too light and not too heavy. However, there are a lot of "bitter" sides. For 1 week, I felt really nauseous. Also, I barely have acne on my face before, but after taking these pills I developed small acne all over. It looks like chicken pox all over my face. I will continue to try this for 2 more months. If the problems persist, I'm going to ask doc to prescribe me something else.”

“I’ve been taking this contraceptive in order to get onto Accutane and I regret it. Prior to taking this pill, I had a normal period and knew exactly when it would start and end. My cycle would last between 6-7 days. My period, now, lasts for about 2 weeks. Would not recommend.”
