Reviews for Sprintec to treat Birth Control

"I start my third pack of Sprintec tomorrow, and I've been thrilled with the results! I primarily take it to manage my acne since I get terrible cysts on my jaw and cheek all the time. After about a month and a half, I have only 2 tiny spots on my right cheek and no new breakouts (except those spots which got a little bigger during the off week then went back down). I also use a prescription lotion from Curology. Beware- The first month, my period went from 5 days to 7 with breakthrough bleeding for another week, followed by a 2 week period. Cramps weren't bad but bleeding was heavier. Skin maintained. I have been a bit moodier and gained some weight, but that's prob bc of stress. My breasts grew too so can't complain about that lol"

"I've been on it for a month and a half now. I skipped the placebo pills to miss my period as recommended. I started spotting on Wednesday and got horrible horrible cramps. Now it's a full on period and my cramps are unbearable. I took menstuaid, pamprin and ibuprofen and NOTHING is working. I also am not myself. I'm very depressed and just want to be alone not near people. I have no motivation. Yes it takes 3 months to get used to a medication but I can't be this sad for 3 months. I'm crying over everything. I've also gained weight and I'm careful with what I eat."

"I've been on Sprintec for 2 weeks now & have been great ! I did a lot of research before I started. I take it at night since your body is more prone to sickness taking it right in the morning. I haven't had any nausea or huge side effects. I was SO HUNGRY the first week. I would eat dinner take the pill then get immediately hungry again. But now that has gone away and it's just a pill to me. If this pill makes you sick , try changing how you take it or when. Try everything before you give up."

"I was on this BC for 8 years and it wasn't until I got off of it that I realized how horrible it was for me. I had terrible mood swings, anxiety and depression. I felt psycho. I experienced hair loss. Extreme bloating and frequent constipation. I was diagnosed with IBS while on this BC. I was constantly tired. The only positives for me is I never got pregnant while on it and my periods only lasted for about 2 days. Everyone is different, but watch yourself closely while on this BC. I was miserable because of it and I didn't even know it."

"I started this pill in June 2016, its the first birth control I ever tried. At first I spotted a lot and my boobs would always hurt, now I get my period twice a month sometimes. My period stays irregular so I always stress about being pregnant. I'm obviously not, but the pill defiantly causes a lot of my anxiety and I'm almost on it for a year and my period is still always changing and I still have side effects. I take the pill at the same time every day and I have never missed one pill.."

"This is the best birth control pill. I am taking this now only for one month and switched from the trisprintec. This pill has the same dose of hormones everyday unlike trisprintec which changes. I have used trisprintec and my moods were so affected by the fluctuation of hormones . This is awesome!good luck!"

"I've been on this pill for almost 2 years now and have had no issues with it really other the gaining 10 lbs and bloating every now and then. It's actually improved my mood, cleared my skin, and helped with my period flow and pain. You can miss your pill by a few hours too and catch up later without worry. It's a pretty effective pill."

"I've only been on this birth control for a few weeks and I am experiencing crazy anxiety and EXTREME dizziness!! It's so scary at times. I just had a baby two months ago and can't risk another pregnancy right now so don't know what to do. Not to mention I've been bleeding for two weeks straight with crazy heavy cramps."

"This pill is horrible. Makes you very moody, very miserable. No sex drive, And made me spot for months . Was on this pill for about a year, switching tomorrow thankfully. No weight gain, but I never get weight gain from birth control. Does its job I guess but overall I hate this pill."

"I been taking these for a few months now after an abortion. So far so good! It is effective in preventing pregnancy. My face is clear ( no acne) , my periods are very short and light ( was 5 days and heavy before), I have no cramps or breast soreness during or before periods. Only thing I had was spotting and nausea in the beginning of taking them. Other than that, this is a good pill for me."

"I was on Sprintec for 4 years. For the first 2 years I had no problems, but then I got sick and I think my body changed after that. I became irritable/depressed, no libido at all, and my face began to break out when I've never had skin problems. I am starting to believe that the pill is making me feel this way. As far as preventing pregnancy it's great, I've missed a day or 2 and have never had any problems. I am switching and hoping that helps"

"I started out taking Tri Sprintec as a teenager. (16). Never had any problems. Had to switch to sprintec because of break through bleeding in my 20's. I am now 37 and still take Sprintec. I have never had any problems with it. After taking it so long it has become a morning habit. When I don't need it anymore then I will feel old. Ha"

"I like this pill. It's helped me maintain clear skin for the most part (still break out during that time of the month) and I haven't gained weight. Been on this pill for 3 years. At the very beginning, I did experience horrible mood swings though, it took some months to get used to. Other than that I'm satisfied with Sprintec. Not life changing but it's overall good."

"I first got put on birth control in 2012 due to ovarian cysts. I tried 5 types in the past that didn't work for me. They either made me depressed, induced anxiety, headaches, acne, etc. I was Aviane for roughly a year, it had the least amount of side effects, but stopped in 2014 because of weight gain & anxiety. Now 3 years later, I'm trying Sprintec to avoid getting pregnant.This is my first week and so far so good. None of the side effects I had with the others. The first few days I was really nauseous, had a headache the 1st day, and I still don't have a strong appetite. I've actually lost 5 pounds so I don't mind though. And my boobs look great. :) Will update more when I continue with this pill for longer."

"I've been on sprintec a little over a month & so far I really like it. My skin is clear & less oily. I don't have bad cramping like I use too. I had some bloating the first couple weeks then it went away. This is the only birth control method I've tried & so far so good! I take it every night at 9:30"

"Previously, I had an iud (mirena). After 3 years all the sudden that caused me to start having terrible headaches and a lump in my breast which went away. I waited 3 months to get my body back to normal before starting Sprintec. It works well at prevention, no more headaches, my boobs have been sore and have grown almost a full cup size in just 2 months. It has increased my appetite. I'm very skinny always been about 100 lbs. I have gained 4 lbs in 2 months. This never happens. I do not fluctuate in weight. I haven't decided if I like it yet. I'm happy with my weight, but I'm a little worried if the increased appetite keeps up if it will taper off soon or continue.?"

"I took the pill before so I decided to try the same one again since it worked really well for me before. I have been on it for about 3 weeks this time and I feel great. A little sore but lil bit bigger boobs, slight nausea but eating fixes it, less appetite, a couple tiny headaches and some cramps for two days in the first week but nothing after that, spotting for two weeks straight basically but very light, skin already looks clearer I think, more energy. I think my hormones were messed up from stress and messing with my skin and cycle. I'm hoping that it continues to get better with this pill."

"This pill is terrible. I've been taking it for 1 years and 4 months. My OB just recently explained to me that Sprintec has different amounts of hormones each week. Meaning that my hormones will bounce. I can tell you from experience that this pill will make you feel very depressed and hopeless. But rest assured there's nothing wrong with you, it is the pill."

"I've been on sprintec for 4 months.. and I just feel like my life is fake ! I get migraines, high blood pressure. I get depressed and very anxious! And I've noticed my side effects get worst when I take the inactive pills (period week) . I just feel very unhappy with life and I just noticed it can be this pill that's doing this to me. Tomorrow will be the last day I take my last pill. (Inactive pill) . But I'm doing this for the best."

"I used sprintec for about a year and a half and I gained and immense amount of weight. Side effects would include sore breasts and nausea if I had to start over because I forgot. The week I stopped taking sprintec I lost about 5lb and it's been about a year since I've been off sprintec and without even trying I lost 45 pounds. I also had very bad mood swings and became very emotional. On the good side my acne cleared up and my period was light and only lasted 4-5 days."

"I've been taking sprintec for two days. On the first day I already have insomnia and it made it worse my depression increased and I started to have bad headaches throughout the day. On my second day my head aches gotten worse and I just didn't want to do any school work. I got really sleepy but couldn't sleep at all and I lost all my appetite for food which isn't like me at all. Today was my third day on it, this morning I had a bad headache and complete lost of appetite. I felt like I was going to pass out like my blood sugar was low even tho I ate a protein bar. I became pale and felt light headed. This medication has increased my depression badly and insomnia."

"I'm 20 years old, never had kids and have been on Sprintec for 9 years now. When I started my period in puberty, it was a nightmare. I bleed heavily for 40 days straight and my hormones were raging. I went to the doctors and they prescribed me the pill. My periods are regular now and even cleared up some acne. The day before and the first 2 days of my period I get some heavy cramping and get emotional, but otherwise I am fine. I rarely use condoms and have never had a pregnancy scare. I highly recommend this pill"

"I have been taking Sprintec for 9 months now and can't wait for my prescription to be up so I can switch. The first 2 months I experienced extreme loss of appetite, depression, suicidal thoughts, panic, anxiety and insomnia. The next 4 months I levelled off. My periods were PAINLESS and light! 2 months ago the bloating and weight gain began. I can't eat anything without feeling bloated/sick. I wake up in the middle of the night with menstrual cramps all throughout the month. I have put on 30 lbs in 2 months. I am an active person and a work 40 hrs a week. I eat a raw vegan diet, and I practice yoga daily. This amount of weight gain doesn't add up. The one positive about Sprintec is it prevents pregnancy, but I hate this roller coaster ride"

"I've been on this birth control for about a year now and it is definitely effective pregnancy prevention. I used to get light back cramps when I got my period before taking this and I'd say they have increased in intensity but I only get them one day now. Other than that I have no complaints. My period has become more predictable (about Wednesday through Sunday) and I haven't noticed any other side effects."
