Ortho Tri-Cyclen vs. Trivora

I was on the generic BC Trivora for about a year and it was awesome - no nausea, cleared my skin up QUICK, no mood swings, light periods, and my sex drive was through the roof.
Now I'm not sexually active anymore, but my skin is broken out with acne on my back and chest. I was prescribed Ortho Tri-Cyclen by my gyn today, and I'm not set to start it for 2 weeks. Of course that means I googled it and all I can find is horror story after horror story about it.
Is ortho tri-cyclen similar to trivora in any way? does anyone have experience with both of these pills? I'm FREAKING out.
