    I started on this for contraceptive and acne control purposes. Granted, I also took Isotretinoin (Accutain) for acne, my skin is blemish free! I’ve been on Sprintec for 10 months and my only complaint is the nausea/vomiting! Even with 10 months of consistency, I always throw up the first 2 days of starting a new pack :( but the rest of the days I take the pills, I’m fine. And no baby, so at least ... Show Full Comment

    I've only been on this pill for 4 days and so far it has been giving me acne pretty bad, I usually never get pimples, and when I do, it's usually like 1 or 2, but ever since I've been on this it's been giving me breakouts all around my mouth area.

I haven't had headaches, my boobs feel fin ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on this pill for one week. So far, not good, but it's early so I'm going to finish the month. I'm bloated, angry, VERY tired, and nauseous. The symptoms are basically first trimester. Hopefully this changes, or I'm just switching to abstinence. Seriously, I also hate everyone right now. I'm so angry.
