User Comments:


For Birth Control “Aside from its effectiveness as a birth control, I have clearer skin and the endometriosis pains I suffer from disappear. Periods are lighter as well.”

For Birth Control “I took Sprintec for three weeks before my boyfriend threw them in the trash because they were making me so sick. This pill completely destroyed me. I was so weak and all I wanted to do was sleep and cry. I was nauseous yet hungry at the same time, it was the weirdest experience ever. I am very happy to be getting my body back to the way it was pre-sprintec”

For Ovarian Cysts “I would not recommend this to anyone. Despite very healthy eating and exercise, I gained ten pounds a month on this medication. I’ve aways been slim prior to this, and completely stopped gaining weight a couple of weeks after I quit taking Sprintec. It’s taken 8 months off it, to get back to my normal weight. In addition to this, I experienced extreme depression.”

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding “I had really irregular periods before, I would go months without getting a period and when I got one I would bleed heavily and for a long time. The longest was 13 days. I never had any side effects with my periods before I started taking this birth control. This is the second month I’ve been on it, and I just got it refilled for the start of the third month which starts tomorrow. I take the pill every morning. The first month I started taking the pill, I was on my period for 3 weeks straight. I was vomiting, having severe cramps, I had depression, horrible mood swings, increased fatigue. Name a symptom, I had it. It got to the point where it was so bad, I had to stay home one day because I couldn’t move due to the amount of pain I was in. I changed my pants about 4 times that day, and couldn’t walk around without a bunch of blood running down my legs. The second month was okay at first, but now I’ve been on my period for 2 weeks, and I still have all the horrible symptoms.”

For Birth Control “This birth control messed up my hormones and insulin levels so badly that I cannot lose the weight it caused me to gain. I’m a very small, extremely active girl. I was 5’2″ and 108lb when I started this pill. In three months my weight sky rocketed to 116lb I got off the pill and my weight only increased to 119 lbs…keep in mind how short I am, so yes, this is a big difference. I eat clean, I run three miles A DAY yet weight won’t move. Do not take this pill.”

For Birth Control “I started Sprintec in March 17 and have been on it ever since. So far I’ve had good and bad experiences with it. I do get dry down there, my sex drive is sometimes low, and my mood is all over the place at times. Although it has been good about lightening my period and my cramps are not as bad, my face is clear for the most part besides when I start my period. Overall, I would get this product. Just be aware of what side effects can happen.”
