Comment from: on Treatment for 10+ years (Patient) Published: February 16

I have been using this drug non-stop since 1982...yes...that's 27 years! I was originally on Triphasil (brand name same drug) until they discontinued it. I have not experienced any negative side affects. Periods are 4 days & the cramps are pretty weak. It's the perfect low-dose Pill & it has always been popular in the UK, not so much in the US for some reason. I would highly recommend it.

I used Trivora for 6 mos. as a generic for Triphasil. This generic caused me to have yeast infections every month, and I was very moody while taking it. I asked my doctor for another generic for Triphasil and am now very pleased with that...Enpresse.

I've been on Trivora for 7 years. It's significantly decreased my menstral flow & it's nice knowing exactly when I'll begin my period each month. My weight has remained relatively constant. I do get a little moody just before my period, however, I believe that's true for most women. It's also very cost effective. Overall, I am very pleased with this pill.

Yes, this pill has served it's purpose by birth control standards, however, I am a poster child for all the side effects. I've gained a considerable amount of weight, I have acne, I'm bloated constantly, my sex drive is nilch, my breasts are swollen and tender, I have constant discharge and I have severe cramping all month long. The only upside is my period comes like clockwork every month. I am getting off this drug asap!

I switched from Ortho-Trylo to Trivora. For me there wasn't much of a difference. The pills are closely related, but this one is cheaper. I haven't had any cramps, my period is usually only 4 days, and it works for what I use it for. I am extremely satisfied.

After taking Triphasil for a few years without any problems, I was prescribed Trivora as a generic 3 months ago and have had nothing but unwanted bloating and really, really bad mood swings. I have recently noticed weight gain. I am definitley looking for another pill.

I have been using trivora for about 6 months. I have not expericed any of the problems that other users have complained about in other reviews I have read. I have a much lighter period and it starts on the same day around the same time every month. I am generally pleased with this product.

Comment from: dasani, 19-24 on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: September 25

I have been taking this pill for 4 years now and love it! I am alergic to latex so this pill REALLY works. It made my period lite and very regular. I am a person who suffers from severe lower back pain and extreme cramps. I used to vomit because they would get so intense thay made me sick. Since taking Trivora I have not had any of these problems.

I have been taking off of Trivora, but my period has not begun and I am not pregnant. Has any one else had this happen? Should I be worried?
