meaning that in other birth controls there is a higher dose but in this case a lesser dose in this birth control. So does that mean this birthday control is less reliable for sex?
i took this BC as a sub/generic for ortho-tricyclen lo. it performs in a similar way to ortho. the lower hormones in the ingrediants wont alter the safer sex as some of these pills are used to treat other conditions! there is a regular ortho-tricyclen so assume there maybe a sub/generic for the that equals the regular. your doctor or nurse practitioner knows best, just ask them or your pharmacist for what you can do if you want to change.
No, Sprintec isn't just used to for periods. It is an effective birth control pill, if taken correctly. Your gynecologist may have referred to your condition and in your case it has been prescribed to regulate periods (I am assuming here).
