Alright ladies let me warn you, yes this drug is very effective (not preggo yet), however, I've had the worse experience with this birth control pill. I feel depressed, I'm more anxious about things, I've become more lazy nowadays. This is horrible. However, everyone is different.

After the birth of my LO in April of 2013 the doc put me on Norethindrone which is a low dose pill. I loved it other than the fact it is not as effective as a normal BC. I switched to Tri-Previfem and immediately had dull headaches daily. I went thru a few days of migraines and nausea. I do not recommend this pill if you are sensitive to estrogen or BC. I also gained a little weight almost imme ... Show Full Comment

DO NOT TAKE THIS! Yeah it is effective as far as not getting pregnant but the side effects are NOT worth it! Not only are you nauseous, weak, fatigued, depressed and all around crappy feeling, but the vomiting, mood swings, sudden crying spells, headaches and all over uncomfortableness is unbearable!!!! I have never been more sick in my entire life. Don't take a chance with this.

As far as this pill preventing pregnancy, it is just fine. However, the side effects are terrible. My insurance changed and I was put on this as the generic for Ortho Tri Cyclen. I immediately started having terrible side effects such as irritability, crying spells, food cravings, weight gain, stomach pains, nausea, headaches,depression, anxiety etc. This was the wort pill I have ever taken. ...
