I've been on this medication for about 5 months now, and it's been a great experience. I do have terrible PMS for about 5 days before my period, but it's not as bad as it was before I started taking Sprintec. I switched from the Sprintec Lo since I was having so much breakthrough bleeding, and overall I've been very happy. I will agree with many that I gained about 4-5 pounds (m ... Show Full Comment

I've been on this pill for almost six months (starting the 6th pack this weekend). I hate it. I have nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to smells, moodiness, tender breasts... you name it. My boyfriend swears I'm pregnant. I've taken 3 home test and even gone to the doctor's office and taken a pregnancy test there. All of which are negative. I hate feeling this way. I loved being on yas ... Show Full Comment

I took this medication for about 6 months. The side effects were not so bad except that it caused excessive hairloss. It took me a while to figure out that the medication was causing it, but i eventually talked to my doctor about it (who i don't think beleived me at first) and i switched to something else. The hairloss stopped immediately. I'm guessing this is one of those side effects ... Show Full Comment

I began taking this 6 weeks ago as a lower-cost alternative to my previous birth control. It was definitely not worth the saved money. I have felt like I'm having an out-of-body experience while on Sprintec. Lack of motivation, anxiety, depression, not to mention gaining 5 lbs around my midsection. I would not recommend Sprintec to anyone.
