    It wasn't for me. After I noticed these emotional patterns happened a week or days before my period, I decided to switch to Paraguard. We shall see how that goes. No more hormones. Absolutely horrible change in emotions that I never had before and it was only before my period/a little during. Some sort of twisted PMS I never had prior to The Pill.

    I started Sprintec six months ago because I had irregular spotting with my previous birth control. I take my pill every morning at the same time. For the first couple of months, everything was going well. I had my period on time (which I have every month), but I did not experience irregular spotting. I had normal PMS symptoms before I started my period. Two months ago, I started getting irregular ... Show Full Comment
