I was recently switched from 'Tri-cyclen-lo' to 'Alesse' only because it wasn't covered by my medical, and I was just curious as to what everyones thoughts were on how effective this is compaired to the one I was previously on. (maybe they have the same effectivenes?)

Anyways, that's all from me.

Alesse is just as effective as other pills, it is a lower dosage of hormones, but still effective =)

Alesse is very effective, but is a low dose so lower dose pills are less effective for the very overweight - likely not a problem, especially since the pill you used to be on, (tri-cyclen-lo) is also a low-dose.

I was on alesse for 7 years, tried nuvaring for awhile (awful) and now I'm back on alesse. I've had no problems, no pregnancy scares. They have a great website if you have any questions your doctor didn't answer, or if you just want to do more reading.

I just finished my third pack of Alesse and I'm glad I'm done them. They made me put on weight, my acne got worse and during the last month, they made me feel like a nervous wreck!
