Switching To Ortho Tri Cyclen

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

I was on yaz for 1 year and it did NOTHING for my skin, just as much acne as ever. I then switched to Desogen, which cleared my acne quite a bit but gave me brutal headaches and mood swings so bad I didn't know who I was anymore lol (high progestin pills don't work for me). I had to switch off desogen right away so my dr. gave me tri cyclen-lo. Took that and had great moods, no headaches, but didn't help with acne, made it worse.

I am supposed to start regular ortho tri cyclen tomorrow. I'm really scared of weight gain and puffiness, did anyone experience those side effects on the regular ortho tri cyclen? If so, did they go away after being on it for a while?
