I have been taking the birth control sprintec for about two months now. The first two weeks i was completely fine, no side effects at all. Then i started light spotting and its only grown worse from there. I have bled everyday and now it is like my regular period. I also get terrible cramps on and off throughout the day. Is this because i have never taken birth control before? or should i call and ask to change BC?
Is this normal - spotting & stomach cramps from starting birth control pills?

You can get irregular bleeding/cycles, spotting for the first three months when you start a new birth control pill. If the irregular cycles continue after three months then please see your doctor. Cramping is a common side effect.
