  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   birth control
Dosage & duration:   one a day (dosage frequency: daily) for the period of more than 10 years
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   none
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   prevented unwanted pregnancy. Regular menstrual cycles.
Side effects:   None for me.
Comments:   I have friends who hated their birth control pills -- their pills made them feel bloated and fat. I had none of those side effects while on TriPhasil/Trivora. It's really simple -- just take one a day -- and pretty effective. It worked for me for more than 10 years. A bonus: my menstrual cycles, which used to be somewhat irregular, became as predictable as clockwork.

Benefits:   general medical benefits: contraception, hormone management. Personal benefits: i controlled my weight better, skin looked more radiant and menstruation pains were alot less than when i was not on the medication.

However, after terminating the pill I had a huge amount of hair loss over 8 months which I was never warned about
Side effects:   side effects - when leaving the pill - i started losing my hair - alot of it
Comments:   daily dosage, usually taken at night time, managed my weight, and helped with my skin as well as a contraceptive
