I just had my second child and went on this pill due to insurance reasons.

Overall I'm pleased with this birth control. I was on Ortho Tri cyclen lo but decided to make a switch to this. For me its only 5 dollars a month so how can I complain?

After taking Ortho Tri-Cyclen for about 5 yrs I had to switch to Tri-Sprintec b/c of health insurance coverage. I have now been on Tri-Sprintec for about 1 year, I do not like it. It is causing major mood swings and most days I feel like my world is just crashing down even though nothing is wrong! I also feel like my sex drive has gone way down which sucks!
