I changed from Tri-Sprintec to Sprintec due to spotting with the Tri. This pill has made me extremely emotional; I could cry at any moment. I'm extremely anxious and miserable. My skin is aweful. I'm aweful to work with, and my relationship is suffering from the mood swings. This pill doesn't help with a lower libido. Luckily, no weight gain! I've been on BC for 10 years now, and I ...

I've been on this for about 13 months now. It is definitely a great pill for preventing pregnancy and regulating your cycle. I never bleed all day and night like I used to, and my periods are only 3-4 days tops now. However, the side effects are why I am no longer taking it. I am sad all the time, for no reason. I've gained a lot of weight even though I'm a collegiate athlete with 3-4 ... Show Full Comment

My script for Levora had to be changed because my insurance wouldn't pay for it after the first of the year. Switched to sprintec, and although it was an effective birth control pill, it made me bleed daily for the entire time I was on it. It wasn't just spotting either, because I could have handled that, but instead, I bled so bad that blood clots were normal to see each time I went to ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am on my third pack. The first two I did have nausea sometimes after taking it. I noticed an increase in fatigue and moodiness. As another woman said it's kinda hard to know for sure if the moodiness was from the pills or because of all of the already raging hormones us woman deal with naturally. My breasts are slightly tender on occasion. Definitely noticed an increase in breast size. Not s ... Show Full Comment

Well I'm not pregnant. I have been on sprintec for 9 months. I have always been a pretty thin/athletic build but I've found it hard lately to maintain my weight. I work out 4 to 5 times a week and I just keep gaining weight. My eating habits have actually gotten better bc I've noticed the weight gain. What I really dislike about sprintec is the huge loss in my sex drive. I never put tw ... Show Full Comment
