Comment:
I just finished my first month of Sprintec. I experienced slight heartburn the first week, extreme gain in breast size and severe tenderness. I have gained weight and have noticed greater than usual hair loss. I'm going to give it a couple more months to see if the side effects even out since they're not that bad and I am rather enjoying the larger breast size (as is my boyfriend). I h ...

I've been on it for over 1 1/2 years and it's been fine. I have gained about 10 pounds, but I'm not positive it's from sprintec because I'm on some other medication as well so who knows.

Comment:
I am just finishing up my second month on Sprintec and I have no complaints. With the other pill I was on I had headaches all the time, but none with Sprintec.
