Recently I had my gyno switch me from ortho-tricyclen-lo to regular ortho-tricyclen because my insurance no longer covered the lo and I didn't really want to pay the extra money for a non-formulary brand.
I got the rx filled the other day and I was given a generic called tri-previfem. I was wondering if anyone has tried this and how their experience with it was? I've heard terrible things about the generic tri-nessa and i'm not sure if this is different or not. Basically, if tri-previfem is going to turn me into a psycho with no sex drive and pack on 10lbs, i'm going to stick to the lo.
For reference, i've been on lo for about a year with really no side effects and it's been working great. I've got an entire pack of it left so i'm going to finish that before starting the tri-previfem, so that'll give me some time to learn about it.
I hope somebody can give me some insight.
Thanks in advance!
I'm about to switch from Loestrin 24 Fe to the Tri-previfem. I don't really want to because I heard your periods last longer. My period normally lasted about 3 days on the Loestrin. How is it working out for you so far? Any bad side effects?
