“I took this stuff for 8 years. I have felt awful that long. I have thyroid problems and so I thought the symptoms were due to my thyroid. I was depressed, lethargic, it was as dry as the Sahara down there, and I could hardly get out of bed no matter how much I slept. I stopped taking it 3 weeks ago. I feel human again for The first time in 8 years! Curse you Trinessa! I give you a negative one million. Don’t make yourself suffer as long as I did. Stop taking this poison!”

“I used trinessa for three years when I got married and it did the trick: didn't getting pregnant. However, immediately when I went off it to try and have a baby, I had a horrible cyst that ruptured. After going to the doctor, they said that it was due to going off of the birth control, and then cysts should only last a few months. It has been over a year now and I still get painful cysts every month which have contributed greatly to infertility. PLEASE consider your BC options before you take them.”

“I first took this medication when I was 21-22 so about 2011-2012 stop taking it in 2013 just because no real reason. But while I had been taking it I had no real side effects or at least I hadn't notice. I was also on metformin I took at combo of both of these meds due to PCOS I was advised the metformin would make me ill. When I just stopped taking the meds I was able to regulate my PCOS this by diet when I stopped taking these medications. Then after a while I started slacking and becoming lazy etc so as a result my periods are back to being irregular. So I went back on trinessa as of 3/2018 but oh my gaaaawd I constantly feel sick sooo sooo sooo soo sooo sick I feel like at times I can't hold in my gagging. I'm 28 now and I regret my decision about having regular periods all because of this constant sick feeling due to trinessa”

“This is my first time ever in my life being on birth control pills. My 1st week on these things my flow was heavier than I have ever seen it in years. I have always had my period regularly, but it would switch up once in a blue. My Gyno insisted that I get on them due to my PCOS. I am also unable to get pregnant and was also told it might help. So whenever I am ready to have children to get off the BC. I'm still not sure of how this works to get pregnant. I've just always been afraid to take BCPs only because I've seen and heard of the damages that have done to some women. Well I hope this plays out well. Will keep you all posted”

“I am 29 never been on birth control before.I recently started taking it due to painful periods due to uterine fibroids, I started taking it a month ago I would take it around 1pm and was the worst mistake ever could not control my emotions or mood was feeling foggy and in daze always tired could not concentrate always agitated. My friend suggested I start taking them at night before bed so I take them at 10 ish to 1030 now and makes a huge difference. I'm back to my old self now my periods last at least 5 days no where near bloating or the painful periods I've had before. I have not experienced any weight gain or any other negative effects besides the ones taking them during the day my breasts are sometimes tender but not a big deal.”

“Migraines and more migraines. I was getting up to 4 migraines a month to the point I started a headache log. I never put two and two together until I mentioned my frequent migraines to my doctor and he told me to go off Trinessa immediately, as it may cause stroke during migraine. Alarming, to say the least. I wasn't convinced that my migraines were related to Trinessa, but now that I've been off it for well over a month with zero migraines, I know that was the cause. I suppose it did its job in regard to the cysts (I have a hysterectomy, so I didn't need it for BC reasons), but the migraines and decreased sex drive were no fun at all. I was blaming hormones, but I was mistaken.”

“Taken trinessa for two months now. Helps me to have a regular cycle. Only thing that bothers me is that I feel really irritable and moody. I don't like that. I use to take orthro tri cyclen lo but my insurance don't cover that particular brand and I loved it because I had no side effects. I guess I should give it more time and maybe the side effects will go away.”

“I've been on trinessa for about 9 years now. But for the last 3 years I have been having major issues that trinessa had previously helped with. These past 3 years my acne has come back, my skin is flaky and oily, I have unwanted facial hair, my periods have become much shorter which for me is not good, I have seizures during the 2 weeks leading up to my period, I am in immense pain and have severe fatigue during those 2 weeks as well. I'm not sure if the birth control has stopped working or if something else that the gyno hasn't found is causing this mess. Either way, this month I will not be taking it so I can see if being off of it helps anything.”

“I've been on 3 different BC . The first was loestrin 24 fe which in the beginning worked great for treating cramps and irregular bleeding. After a few months the pill went from treating everything to treating nothing . I was bleeding or spotting for 3 weeks out of the month . My doctor changed my prescription to Microgestin. I stayed on this pill for 5 years with little to no problems until the last few months where this pill caused me horrible cramps and 2 ovarian cysts . I had alot of issues with mood swings on Microgestin so looked for a lower hormone option. My GYN really wanted me to try an IUD but I was way to scared after hearing horror stories from family and friends . I have been on Trinessa for a little over a month and I'm very pleased so far . Besides some nausea on the first week of starting the pack , I've had little to no issues . Period started on time with almost no cramps. I get hungry more often but have found taking this pill at night helps that .”
