    I was put on tri-sprintec a few months ago after my regular pill was discontinued..Ive had lots of stomach issues since the-cramps,bloating,naseau, not to mention vag discharge and itching resembling a yeast infection. I thought I was crazy thinking these symptoms were because of this pill, but I am reading lots of the same issues I have.

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.

    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 should have listened, but I had been on tri-sprintec as a teenager and couldn't recall a problem. At first, I didn't notice much difference, but my husband claimed I seemed depressed ...
