Reviews for Tri-Linyah

Elizabeth March 23, 2021

“I have been on Tri-Linyah 2 separate times and both times I had very bad results. Everyone is different but for me it gave me breakouts, headaches, nausea, cramps, boobs are super tender, my periods are super painful and my anxiety and depression has gotten so much worse over the past 2 months I’ve been back in this pill it seems like I’m having an anxiety attack almost every night and I can’t live like this anymore. I’m calling my doctor tomorrow to get it switched to something different. I hope y’all had a better experience than I did. Never going back to this pill ever again!!”

“I was on this for 3 years and I can definitely see the pros and cons, but keep in mind birth control is very different for everyone! Some of the negative side effects I’ve came across in my experience: weight gain in the first year of taking it (went from 153lbs to 165lbs), awful mood swings/I’ve notice a lot more anger in my emotions, I get nauseous every time I take it, and low sex drive. Some pros include: no unplanned babies, periods are light and always on time, clear skin, and bigger boobs. It has its ups and downs but for myself, it gets the job done which is great but I can’t wait till I can get off it in my marriage and get my body back in gear (:”

“I already have depression, but this birth control pill Tri-Linyah made it so much worse. My anxiety was through the roof, I had hallucinations in mirrors/reflective things, suicidal thoughts... hated it. Makes me fear getting back on birth control.”

“I've been on Tri-linyah for about a year and a half now and for the first year I had no symptoms at all. My skin got better, no weight gain. But these past 6 months have been terrible. I've had EXTREME mood swings- like fine one hour and the next I'm full of anger and sadness. I've been crying over the simplest things and getting anxious and sad before bed time. I look forward to my period week because I know I'll feel like myself again for that week. It's been making my relationships struggle and I'm about to quit it because the side effects definitely aren't worth it.”

“I have been taking tri linyah for 4 years. I have never gotten pregnant on this pill. My boobs got a cup size bigger on it and i was 115 pounds before i took it and after taking it i am 125 pounds. My periods are on time and lighter on the pill. The nausea subsided about 2 months after first taking it. The only thing i didn't like about it is that it gave me mood swings and lower sex drive.”

“I LOVE this Tri-Linyah birth control. From reading other reviews, it is different for everyone but I love it. My periods and completely regular and I know the exact time and day I’m going to start, so no surprise periods. I have barely any cramps and before this pill I had HORRIBLE cramps to the point of tears. And the best thing, no pregnancies. I never gained any weight. The only downside is I do get very emotional the week before my period, but nothing severe. It’s just a normal thing.”

“I’ve took the Tri-Linyah pill for 2 years now and I hated it! I was very emotional the whole month, gained weight, really really sore boobs, stomach discomfort everyday! But it’s different for everyone!”

“I've been taking this for two months and hate it. My periods have been extremely worse than the ones I had before the pill. Plus I'm spotting every. single. week. In addition, I am so nauseous, lower sex drive, and very moody. I forgot to take this pill one night and felt way better the next day. I took the pill that night, and started feeling sick again immediately. I thought I've had a flu bug, but I think it's the effects of this medication!”

“I took this medication for about 8 months and developed a pulmonary embolism. I'm 26, non smoker, 115lbs, very healthy. Birth control causes blood clots in many women. Please be aware of this. Especially if you have pain in your legs or start to feel a tightness in your chest. Never would I anticipate this happening to me.”

“Please do not use this birth control Tri-Linyah, just after being on it for one month, I have gained over 20 pounds. It helped with acne kind of but not much at all. I've been incredibly moody and self conscious because of this rapid weight gain.”

“At 16 I went on the pill, I was on the ortho tricyclin for about 3 years with no problem aside from small weight gain... suddenly I had gotten my period for 2 months straight! So my doc changed me to Sprintec and immediately I was getting headaches and yeast infections continuously! So now I'm on Tri-Linyah and its horrible! My mood swings are out of the world! I lost my sex drive completely! I went from wanting sex with my man of a year all the time to never! The amount of discharge has completely increased its horrible.”

“On Tri-Linyah my periods are light and relatively easy, I didn’t gain a bunch of weight, but I do have a LOT of uncontrollable mood swings. and anger - like I’m talking rage and it’s enough to make me hate this birth control, but keep in mind every body is different. and my skin has been super clear. but I can’t deal with the emotions!!! and neither can my relationship lol”

“I have been on this birth control for over a year now and never in all my years have I experienced chronic yeast infections like I have with this pill. Not only that but I still have really bad hormonal acne. I have read up on the reasons birth control can cause yeast infections and my doctor is very aware of it the whole time. Tomorrow I have my one year hoping to switch to something better. Good news no pregnancies so at least that worked.”

“I have been on this pill for 10 days, purposely did not take it yesterday and already feel better today. I have had a headache every day on this pill, sensitivity to light, nausea, and heart palpitations. Then the anxiety started setting in, and I felt detached from reality. I have a lot of stress in my life but have always been able to manage it. I almost passed out while driving and went to the ER and have had every test known to man and everything is normal. Yesterday I had a panic attack. I have never had symptoms of anxiety or depression apart from normal stress and a bit of sadness after giving birth to my kids. I know everyone's body reacts differently, but it took me several days to even consider this could be my birth control.”

“I've been taking Tri-Linyah for a few years now, after trying many other pills. On this pill, my acne has completely cleared up and I have never gotten pregnant so I'd like to rate it pretty high. On other pills in the past, I had various side effects ranging from bad acne to insane anxiety, but haven't experienced any of that with this pill. The only reasons I'm not 100% in love with it are because I have gained a noticeable amount of weight since taking it (10 pounds is a lot when you only weight 115 to begin with) and my periods tend to last around 5 days. I had it down to 2-3 days when I was on Microgestin, so 5 really sucks. It does it's job though, so I keep taking it.”

“Tri -Linyah was going great for me the first few months. Then I started getting allergic reactions on my face. Terrible migraines, WEIGHT GAIN!! Boobs grew like crazy I went from an A to a B and I just didn’t fit into any of my bras. I felt suffocated all the time cause of my boobs and I just felt bloated and gross.”

“I have been on Ortho Tri-cyclen for about 14 years, with no issues, no pregnancies. When I got a prescription for it, the pharmacist suggested Tri- Linyah which is supposed to be the generic version, and because it was free opposed to OTC which would have been 60$. Hesitant, I agreed to try it out, and she stated that if I had any issues I could always switch back. ..... Not even 3 months in, and I'm pregnant.”

“I’ve taken this pill for 3 years. No pregnancies, but 30 pounds of weight gain and insane mood swings. The only reason I’m still on it is because it makes my period incredibly regular unlike other pills I’ve tried, but not any lighter and still some occasional cramping. I’m thinking of changing at my yearly appointment or going off of birth control entirely but I really need to weigh my options. Pills are different for everyone and I would still recommend it.”

“On Tri-Linyah I’ve experienced extreme mood swings and irritability. I feel like my relationship suffered greatly because of this. I was switched to this pill about 3 months ago when I switched pharmacies. I used to be on ortho-tri-cyclen. I guess this is the generic form. I just put two and two together and realized my birth control could be contributing to my negative feelings. I stopped it about a week ago and feel so much better.”

“Since I've been on this pill I've had terrible mood swings around my period, the first week of every pack I feel nauseous and throw up usually once or twice. I have never gotten pregnant but my boyfriend and I take extra precautions and lately I have horrible acne and back pain”

“I am finishing up my fifth packet and am switching to low ogestrel. This birth control did not work for me because I gained 10 lbs within 2 months of being on it; diet and exercise couldn't even take it off. As for my periods while on this BC were very regular and light. I never experienced bad mood swings.”

“I moved to a new city and a new pharmacy. They switched my birth control from Norgestimate to this Tri-linyah. Literally after 3 days of taking it I had all the symptoms I get with my period! Sore breasts, horrible and I mean horrible cramps, and HORRIBLE mood swings! Not to mention the constant overheating! I called the pharmacy to switch it back by the 7th day.”

“I love Tri-linyah, it works efficiently and regulates my periods well. The only complaint I have is every month, the day after I take my first pill out of a new packet, I always throw up multiple times and am very very nauseous.”

“I've been on different birth controls for 6 years. Always on a low dose and I will say I've always had accuracy with all . After getting tests done even at 15 I've been told I'm extremely fertile. Not once did I get pregnant until at 17 I stopped for a while and I had a miscarriage. But not once taking the pill. Every month almost I become paranoid it will fail but has yet to. I take the pill around the same hour almost every day and if I miss one I double up. I get nauseous for days after so i assume it could be pregnancy. This makes me use the internet that entire month looking at pregnancy signs and reading scary reviews about women saying birth control failed them. I believe that is only because they haven't been taking it right”

“For acne it clears it up It’s great for everything else like preventing pregnancy and regulating your period. The only downside to this stuff is that it thinned out my perineum so sex was painful in certain positions but I’m still looking for a better pill to keep my period regulated .”

“I've been on this pill for about 5 months, I've been experiencing nausea , vomiting , bad pains in my right leg and my boobs have gotten bigger and I'm spotting more but bleeding less during my period. But, on the bright side, my period cramps have gotten better.”

“I’ve been taking this birth control Tri-Linyah for about a year and it’s completely cleared up my acne and I used to get severe cramps and I have not gotten them at all since. The only downsides is I have awful mood swings and my emotions have been up a wall. I also have had yeast infections from this and I’ve experienced 2 week periods multiple times. I’d say it’s worth it for the most part though.”
