I just started taking Sprintec birth control pills and was wondering about them. If i have a .250mg pill... would that prevent pregnancy?? or just stop bleeding?
Sprintec will prevent pregnancy if taken correctly. That is every day at around the same time of day. BCP's, like Sprintec, are less effective when taking antibiotics though (and some anticonvulsant drugs-ask your pharmacist if you take any other meds if they interfere with the efficacy of the Pill) so if you are put on antibiotic therapy you need to use back up like a condom for the whole time you are taking the antibiotics and for at least 7 days after.
