Comment:
I never had any issues with Sprintec. I took the pills for about 6 months and after I got married I stop the pill and got pregnant almost immediately. I am now taking the pill after I've had my baby. I'm no longer breast feeding so I take it. I love it. I have normal cycles every 28 days and can always count on it. Never irregular periods and no random spotting.

Comment:
I have been taking Sprintec consistently for almost 6 years, first thing every morning. My periods are predictable and consistent, lasting 4-5 days with normal bleeding. When I first started the medication I was prone to break outs, after 6 months my skin cleared up completely, with the occasional breakout around my menstrual cycle. I have had no side effects, and the medicine is doing exactly wha ... Show Full Comment

I love Sprintec!! I took it for a year straight, little to no side effects. My periods were always normal and I never had problems with spotting. My doctor just recently switched me to Mononessa, and I don't like it at all. My breast are very tender, I have been very emotional about everything, and my sex drive has gone from a 10 to a 0, and I really don't like that. I also have been very ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been on Sprintec for 8 months now. The first month I bled heavily 3 weeks straight. After that it was not unusual to spot randomly throughout the month. My already bad cramps were also made a lot worse. So bad that pain medication did not even help. I never had a regular cycle. I would either start the week before the white pills, or the week after. I also gained about 15 pounds within ... Show Full Comment
