Comment:
I was on a BC for about 6 months and then my insurance changed and I started Tri-Pevifem. At first it was the same as my other one (including some break through bleeding) but after about two weeks on this new pill I began getting anxious literally all the time. For the next weeks of my cycle while taking this drug I could not control my thoughts. I say that seriously because I am generally very ha ... Show Full Comment

I'm 24 and I've been taking this pill for about 6 months. Since I started taking this pill, I've had breakthrough bleeding, heavier periods and TERRIBLE cramping and bloating. As far as the emotional side effects go, I don't have much to say. There are too many other contributing factors in EVERYONE's lives that can trigger spastic emotions... But this pill seriously sucks. ... Show Full Comment

DO NOT take this birth control. For me, it has a very strong effect on my emotions and my general outlook on life. It makes me depressed and super anxious. I cry about anything and everything and I was not like this prior to this medication. My boyfriend said he's noticed a huge change in me for the worse since I've been taking this. He's begging me to go on another kind and starting n ... Show Full Comment

I'm 23, was on this BC for about two years through the duration of my relationship. Never had any noticeable side affects from using Tri-Sprintec or Triprevifem. Reliable if used properly. I always took at bedtime and periods always lasted 5 days. Stopping to give my body a break but I will ask to use this again in the future because I never had issues with it.

Comment:
I have been on this brand for a little over a year if I'm not mistaken. Overall, it's been better than other brands I've tried. My periods aren't heavy but they aren't very light. Periods are very regular & last for 6 days each month. Acne has cleared up but there are months when I get a lot of breakouts for no apparent reason. I have gained about 30lbs, but I can't bla ...
