I’ve been on Ortho tri-cyclen for 11 years and frankly i never get a side effect. Every woman is different. I have PMDD and it actually helps me control my emotions. I remember having breast tenderness and some nasuea when I first started the pill. I tried the patch once to see if it was easier but I quickly went back to the pill. give it 3 to 4 months then see how you feel.
