I have been taking Sprintec for 5 months. Almost every month I have had breakthrough bleeding. My doctor has switched me to Femcon.

Comment:
I was on Yasmin for years and decided to go with a cheaper pill. I guess you get what you pay for because after being on this for three weeks I had bloating, gas pain and weight gain. I would not recommend this pill to anyone.

I was on Ortho Tri pill and the patch in the past, never had the nausea. Since I started this pill, I wake up at night with nausea and have it through out the day. I will not take this one again.

Comment:
I have been on Orthocyclen and Yasmin before with no side effects...took this only three weeks with bloating and cramping, gas pains, weight gain, breast tenderness. No mood changes and still effective, but being cheap is not worth feeling this way. Would not recommend.
