I have been taking Sprintec for years until this time the pharmacy gave me Mononessa (they were probably out of Sprintec.)

I threw the pack away just after that first week and I'm never going to take it again after those horrible symptoms. The only upside was my face cleared up and my breasts got fuller.

Comment:
I really like this medication. I am on my second month and have had no problems, especially because I never forget to take it. It has cleared up my skin significantly and I have definitely not had a decrease in sexual desire. If anything, it's a comfort not having that worry in the back of my mind that I might get pregnant unplanned. I am very satisfied with this birth control. I also hi ... Show Full Comment
