I used to be on Lo Ovral but that made my heart race constantly. And it caused quite a bit of acne. So I asked to be switched to something else which ended up being Ortho Cyclen, genericly, Tri Sprintec. I've been on Tri Sprintec for one month now...and have had no problems what so ever.

I had been switched from one pill to this pill and I hate it. The first two months were okay but now I feel sick all the time. I get headaches all the time and my body aches constantly. I gained weight from this pill when I actually lost weight from the first pill I had been on. I am getting off of this pill this week and I would not recommend this pill to anyone.
