    I have been taking Sprintec for the past 3 years. It works well as being used as a contraceptive plan. After my 2 years of taking Sprintec, my mood and my anxiety went sky high. I then had attacks all the time and went to the doctor and she put me on an anti anxiety pill and demanded I was taken off of my birth control. Sprintec destroys your mental health and no one deserves that as life always h ... Show Full Comment

    I’ve never had any major issues with Sprintec. I’ve been on it for about 4 years because it’s what my doctor initially recommended for BC and acne. I have a very predictable schedule as to when my period stops and starts. Sometimes if I try to skip the placebo pills and skip my period, it messes up my cycle and becomes unpredictable. That’s the only issue I’ve ever had so I just stick to my schedu ... Show Full Comment

    Writing this review because of all the negative reviews. I have had no side effects from taking this birth control. I got my prescription online and they deliver it straight to my house. It only cost $15 dollars a month with no insurance. I have nothing but great things to say about Sprintec and the company making it available for people who do not have insurance or a way to get to an obgyn.

    Was put on Sprintec 3 months ago for birth control and I would tell others that the way this medication effects you is completely individual. I was hesitant to take this due to the bad ratings, but I’ve actually toned up rather than gain weight, my acne cleared, and my periods are regulated and normal. The only downside for me was mild dizziness the first month as my body got used to the extra hor ... Show Full Comment
