I have been on this pill for over a year and I really didn't have any problems with it until recently. I have experienced excessive sweating in every situation, cold, hot, nervous, you name it.

I couldn't handle the side-effects of this drug. After only a short time on this drug, I had tender swollen breasts, cramps, and began to get moody and even depressed. In addition, my sex-drive vanished. Based on my own experience, I would not recommend this drug to others.

Comment:
I could not continue using Sprintec because the side effects were too overwhelming. I had breast tenderness, cramping, headaches, AWFUL nausea, vomiting, and I was the grumpiest person you'd ever met. The price is the only thing this pill has going for it...but then again, you get what you pay for.

Comment:
I was put on this birth control after not being on the pill for about a year. After 4 months of mental breakdowns, my boyfriend begged me to get off of it. We were fighting and I almost broke up with him multiple times for no reason. I had awful gas, mood swings, horrible cramps, couldn't climax at all, and this all-over itchy feeling. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who like there ... Show Full Comment
