    This birth control does what it needs to which is fine. But the side effects really hit me. I had flu like symptoms the first couple days. I am on day 8 right now and have no?t had the stomach to eat anything in 3 days. I am ALWAYS nauseous. My sex drive is not the same. And the moodiness has suck in, but I am assuming it is from being sick and lack of wanting/having sex. I understand my body migh ... Show Full Comment

    I'm just finishing with my third pack on this. It's my first time using pill form birth control so I can't compare to others. So far it's been easy to use and no I'll side effects. I was worried about nausea and decreased libido, but none of that happened. I did notice my mood swings are a little more erractic around my period, but it's something I caught on to and can mana ...

    I did gain 7 pounds in the first three months of taking the pill, but it all naturally went away over 10 months (I’m sure it would be faster if you ate healthy and exercised), and my skin was HORRIBLE for three months. After almost a year on it, I have no side effects at all, and I have yet to get pregnant, even when I’ve been a little risky with it. Take it as directed, and stuck with it, and I p ...

    I took Tri-Sprintec for 17 years. I never had a problem with cramps, spotting, weight gain, decreased libido, mood changes, breakouts, etc. In fact, I never had breakouts at all until I stopped taking it. I had super light periods that only lasted 3-4 days. I couldn't have been happier with it.

    Comment:
    I just started this birth control pill and I noticed when I got off my period, I had some spotting which I never had with my first birth control. I think this one is better than the other one cause I gained weight and was hungry all the time. But the good side about this birth control is that when I got my period I DIDN'T experience any cramps and when I did it was very very light pain... This ... Show Full Comment
