“I just started these pills last month I had a period for 5 days and then 2 days later I experienced heavy bleeding. This pill has been causing me to feel nauseated and having severe stomach pains. I do not recommended this prescription to anyone.”

“My insurance company just switched me from Ortho-tricyclen to Tri-Previfem. This is my second month on it. My period usually lasted for 3 days also. This time it's been 5 days. And in the past 2 days, I've had a lot of bleeding. I've gone through over 10 pads already today. I will stop taking it and try to go back to Ortho Tri-Cyclen. I'd been on Ortho Tri-cyclen for many years and never had any side-effect.”

“I have been taking Ortho Tri-Cyclen for about 6 years -- then my insurance switched me to Tri-Spintec. Then a couple of months after that I was switched to Tri-Previfem by my insurance. My period last month was so light, I was thinking "yay!".. but I'm halfway through my pack this month and have started my period again. I'm going to guess it will continue into next week when I'm scheduled to have my period. I don't like this at all. Part of the reason I love birth control is I can be in control of my period and schedule things around its arrival (i.e., my wedding coming up). After reading these reviews, I'm going to talk to my pharmacist about going back to Ortho Tri Cyclen. Thanks for the reviews ladies.”

“This has been my first month taking this birth control pill and the reason I decided to take it was to help regulate my period. Well now I have been bleeding longer than usual, I have really really bad cramps., I cry for no reason, I get mad at my husband and my daughter for no reason and I'm constantly depressed. I cant take it anymore.”

“New to this birth control, my pharmacy ran out of my Tri- sprintec; experiencing bad stomach pains, heavier periods, and outrageous mood swings. Has curbed my hunger and have lost weight, while keeping extremely dehydrated too.”

“Hey everyone, i thought i was losing it until i read these reviews. The first couple weeks on this were ok, then i have been spotting...which leads to heavy bleeding...to light bleeding...but now this has been going on for 3 weeks. I thought it was finally ending and today i had heavy bleeding at work. Through my super plus tampon and all over my dress. Yep awful. My dr. Told me it may take 3 months to adjust. Im beyond miserable. This pill sucks.”

“I was diagnosed with PCOS which caused abnormal periods to the point where I wasn't having them for years. When I was diagnosed at 14 with it they immediately put me on Tri-Previfem. For the first 6 months everything was going great. Then the mood swings started, I suffered from depression before and then this just made it worst. I couldn't stop crying and never wanted to get oh of bed. Last week I stopped taking this and switched to Junel FE. For birth control and acne and period regulator I'd give this a 10/10 but wouldn't consider being on it for two years or long like I was because it can greatly mess with your emotions.”

“I switched to this pill about 7-8 months ago and it has been hell ever since. I became very depressed, anxiety was heightened, exhausted all the time, no motivation/energy, did not get out of bed, became very negative and angry, and had no libido. I would sleep for 12 hours and still be tired and take naps during the day. This affected my relationship and my boyfriend ended up leaving me due to my depression. I have now quit the birth control and I feel like a brand new person and back to my old self. Ladies, if you're having these side effects and it's affecting your relationship with your significant other, family, or friends.. do not wait it out!!!! I wish I could go back and quit the pill a longggg time ago!”

“I've been on Previfem for 3 months and I am still experiencing breakthrough bleeding that lasts until my withdrawal bleed. I take the pill at 6:15 every morning, and have never been off by more than 15 min. The only positives are that my breakthrough bleeding occurs like clockwork (after 12 active pills) and it made my skin better. But the bleeding itself drains the life out of me and makes me really depressed. I gained 7 pounds on the pill, but I think I had a hormone imbalance that made me lose weight before that. I had lost 10 pounds while eating everything in sight before that, and I had a period that faded into light spotting but would not stop for almost 2 months (only stopped because of the pill). I am switching pills next month.”

“Do not try this, I had read the reviews b4 I started this and felt real uneasy about taking it, but one review said it worked for the cramps, so I decided to take it and see what happens, by day 4 my hormones were so out of wack, I went from happy and loving my life to suicidal. I was crying about everything and I just wanted to die. I never knew something as simple as birth control could screw me up so bad in a matter of days. I also had started cramps like I has started, and I just got off my cycle, threw away my pills the next day and am doing much better the same day I came off of it.”

“Been taking this birth control pill for about 3 years now. I had no problems or side effects until about 6 months ago. I started having breakthrough once a month every month. It was so annoying. I am starting a new pack next month, Apri.”
