This is the first birth control I have ever been on so I'm not really sure what to compare it to. I noticed a bit of nausea which then sometimes curbs my appetite. Also about a week into it I came down with a yeast infection. Now today I noticed I'm spotting and getting cramps and I will be taking the white pills in 2 days to get my period, which I hope will be light and less then the 5 ... Show Full Comment

I have only been on this for one day. But it doesn't seem hard to remember to take it. My dr said it didn't matter if I took it give or take 30 minutes each night of the original time I took it. Most of the side-effects seem okay compared to what my period normally is. 3 weeks long, 1 week of bleeding in the middle - the other two weeks are heavy cramping, mood swings, bloating, headaches, ...

While this medication was effecitve as I am not pregnant, and I don't find taking a pill a day to be difficult, I do feel that it has altered my moods. I am more sensitive, become easily stressed, increased anxiety, decreased sex drive. I enjoyed clear skin and less PMS but I am reasearching a new pill to try. For me,t he side effects are not worth it where there are so many other options.

I am so glad to read these posts - I thought I was crazy. I was put on tri-sprintec due to low cost (insurance) and noticed almost immediately a change in libido. Just not interested in anything more than cuddling - not me. I have been taking it for 4 months.
