    I took Sprintec for about 2 years before being switched to Mononessa by my pharmacy. I have been at my wit's end trying to pinpoint why I cannot stop gaining weight. I exercise 3-4 days a week, eat healthy, and have never had any problem losing weight easily. I have gained about 10 pounds over the past 6 months on Mononessa. I LOVED sprintec.

    This has been my first BC and I've been on it for just about three years. I am very satisfied with it. It made my periods more manageable and helped my acne. Only recently have I been having issue which I'm not sure is because of the medication, my chemistry, or sex.

    For the first few months, things worked out pretty well. My periods were regular and lighter, but now one month, my bleeding will be insanely heavy, and the next month, I won't have a period at all! I've been totally apathetic since I started taking this pill. As a college student, my grades have slipped, and I cannot focus or find motivation. I've been incredibly tired due to this med ...

    Almost to the end of my first month of using it, with no problems. First three days had some mild to heavy nausea, but since then nothing. No other side effects that I can see, I must be a lucky one, considering most other reviews are bad!
