Taking triphasil, wants to use trigestrel, side effects of brown discharge, prolonged bleeding. Treatment?

I am going to start using Trigestrel. Are there going to be any kind of side effects that I have to look out for. I see on the internet that there are many problems with the Tregestrel pill . Like bleeding for a month or longer and a brown mucous discharge . Something that this person never experienced with Triphasil.

Hi,
Trigesteral (Ethinylestradiol + Levonorgestrel) which is normally used as a oral contraceptives,
Hormonal contraceptives usually causes many side effects which are usually bearable and not always for everyone.
If after starting this contraception if you experience any difficulties in continuing, there are always better alternatives which your Gync may suggest.
Just dont worry before starting the treatment itself.
Bye
