I would have times when all I wanted to do was cry, and I didn't know why. Before using birth control I rarely cried. My sexual desire went way down, and I never had a problem before. My pimples did clear up nicely. I used it for 5 months

I've taken this for a three months now. When I finish my blue pills, I get terrible migraines that, lately, keep me from working. I was told it was because of the hormone levels changing.

I've been on both Sprintec and Mononessa and have never really noticed a difference between the two.

Who knows...all in all I like fore products; Mononessa an ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking Sprintec for years until this time the pharmacy gave me Mononessa (they were probably out of Sprintec.) I'm in my 3rd week of taking Mononessa and my breasts are horribly tender and my nipples actually hurt. I am gaining weight already and my stomach is constantly bloated. I hate this product and need to switch back to Sprintec immediately.
