This was my first time taking the pill. For the first 2 or 3 months, I had terrible mood swings. The 1st month I had breakthrough bleeding and breast tenderness but after the 3rd month, everything seemed to level out.

I went on Sprintec 28 day tablets 3 weeks ago when my first period post delivery (I have a 4 month old) started. I have been bleeding for 3 weeks. My doctor prescribed Orthocyclen but my pharmacy gave me Sprintec without asking me if I wanted it. I will not be using this pill again. I know hormones are crazy after giving birth but a 3+ week long period is ridiculous!

This birth control is HORRIBLE! ! I have only been on it a month, but I have terrible mood swings, depression and sore breasts. Since it's only $9.00/month - I guess you get what you paid for. I will be switching back to Yaz! It's more expensive but worth it! !
