    I, like others, had been on Sprintec and was switched to Mononessa with the promise that it was virtually the same pill. Over the 6 months or so I was taking it, I developed extreme headaches that were nearly unbearable and unable to treat with any pain medication. I was also so tired that I could hardly force myself out of bed with 10 hours of sleep, only to find I had to take a nap later. I a ... Show Full Comment

    My college health center switched me to Mononessa from Pervifem (because it was cheaper for them.) While taking these pills I was always tired, moody, had horrible migraines and gained 10 pounds (which my previous birth control didn't make me do.) Not to mention, after I stopped taking it in November, my December period was 2 weeks late and my January one has yet to come. I took two pregnanc ... Show Full Comment

    I was on Sprintec for about eight years when my mail order pharmacy switched me to Mononessa. On the third week of taking this pill, my right leg started to throb with pain constantly and I could barely walk. A day later, I noticed that my right leg was swollen compared to my left leg and I had tingling in it. I went to the hospital and they discovered a huge blood clot that started in my mid-t ...

    I was switched by my pharmacy from Sprintec last month after having taken Sprintec for 2 1/2 years since my son was born. I have felt moody, dizzy, sooo tired and have had some wicked migraines (much worse than usual) - looking for something else!

    I've experienced migraines every week of my period for the entire week. Bad. I am going to see a Neurologist to make sure it's the birth control. Overall I like the pill, just hate having to remember to take it every day! I was on the ring in the past and loved it but got my period every other week. Doc. said it didn't have enough hormones or something. I was very happy with the ring!
