For Acne and Cramps I use Ortho Tri-Cyclen

Posted by: UnMom on Wed Jan 2, 2008

For the last 5 years I have been using Ortho Tri-Cyclen.

I used to have really bad cramps and terrible acne and this Birth Control has practically cured BOTH!

My face is almost always clear now and my cramps are minimal to none.

I keep my package next to my bedside table and before I turn off the light, I take my pill and it's almost always at the same time every night (which is important as well).

This bedtime habit makes remembering easy and remembering to take it is really the hardest part.

Taking the pill regularly has the highest success rate for birth control use; 99.97% EFFECTIVE!

Ortho Tri-Cyclen costs about $20 a month for a pack.

If you're new to the pill you may feel nauseous for the first day which is mild and after a few months usually goes away.

If you miss a pill you're going to have to take 2 in 1 day to make up for it which can make you feel a little nauseous as well.

Women who miss a pill or more every month should consider an alternative to taking the pill, because missing the pill could mean welcoming baby :/
