I have only been using Sprintec for one month but have used it in the past for longer periods of time. I have always suffered from severe pms symptoms that are almost completely alleviated by taking this drug. My periods are shorter and lighter, my cravings are decreased, my bloating is reduced and my sex drive has stayed the same. I would definitly recommend this birth control to anyone lookin ...
