Comment:
I was switched to Tilia last month because my usual Tri Legest pills were not available.

I have been on this pill for a full month and like it. It has helped clear up the acne I was given while taking Loestrin FE significantly.

I was terrified to take it after reading the terrible reviews but over all I'm satisfied with it. Still mi ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am only taking this for one month; the pharmacy was out of Tri-legist Fe (generic Estrostep - why does Estrostep have to be so expensive!?) Im on the second week and I am experiencing breast tenderness. I have never experienced this side effect before with any other BC pill...actually I have not experienced this kind of breast sensitivity since puberty! I also think the packaging is a wast ...

Comment:
After 8 years of being on this medication I had two blood clots that led to cardiac arrest twice. I beat the odds and survived. The doctors who treated me at the hospital said I shouldn't have even made it to the hospital alive with the size of the blood clots that had reached my heart. I do not smoke and am in good health. Please be aware of this dangerous side effect that doctors don't t ... Show Full Comment
