    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? I've been on this medication for quite a few months now and I haven't noticed any horrible side effects like many other women on here are talking about. I may get a little more emotional than usual sometimes but it ... Show Full Comment

    I've been taking this medication for 4 months now (starting 5th month tomorrow). The first 2 weeks I had nauseous feelings and mood swings but it could also be because I was stressing over finals in school. After the first month things were okay, I did spot light when I was late on a pill (about an hour) but that went away quickly. My "period" or withdrawal bleeding started on the ... Show Full Comment

    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!

    I've been on it for 9 days now, and it seems like everyday I'll get these minor little cramps. It's really irritating. My libido has already drastically changed. Sex just doesn't feel good anymore.
