03 May 2014 It is something that really works for me. It is easy and small to use. It rid away my cramps which were extremely bad. I would recommend it to anyone who has extremely painful cramps during their menstrual cycle and to anyone trying not to get pregnant.

14 Feb 2013 Personally I do not know if the birth control is the reason for my recent body changes or if it is something else that may be causing these changes but since taking Ortho Tri-Cyclen my breast have been extremely sensentive, I have been overly tired and my mood swing have become worse. I've also have been experiencing weakness in my legs and truthfully I have never felt like this before taking this medication so the first thing I am going to do is call my doctor tomorrow morning and I am honestly thinking about stopping this medication
