Shortly after I started taking this pill I noticed clusters of small, white patches of skin on my stomach that almost looked like they had lost their pigmentation. It only gets worse in the sun. So weird. Anyone else experience anything like this?

I was on ortho-tri-cyclen lo for over a year and thought it was great. I switched to Tri-sprintec after I found out it was cheaper. Although my doc did advise to "stick to what you know works."

See for yourself, and if you don't ... Show Full Comment

I am so glad I decided to look up this pill. All of the user reviews have been so helpful. My pharmacist switched me to this pill because it's only $9, compared to $25 I was paying before, and I've had nothing but problems since I've been on it. My boyfriend actually asked me the other night, "Do you not want me anymore?" and the answer is yes, but my body doesn't reflect ... Show Full Comment
