I'm just starting my second week on this pill, and I'm having horrible headaches. I haven't had any other symptoms. Also, my acne is starting to clear up, which I'm ecstatic about.

I was under the assumption that this medication would solve my problem without pain. It turns out that I was correct about the first aspect - it did solve my problem. However, it also created some problems. The worst problem is that I feel as though I have been punched in the gut. And this pain never ceases. A devastating headache is a close second.

I have been taking this pill for about two and a half weeks. I start my inactive pills next Sunday. The first few days of taking the pill, my acne got pretty bad, but it has cleared up so much since then. I'm the type of person who eats a lot, and always has an appetite, but I have lost my appetite some since being on this pill, which I think is a good thing for me. My breasts have grown within two weeks, and my sex drive is higher than ever. I'm totally satisfied with this pill, but everyone has different side effects. My older sister has taken it for a year and never really had bad side effects, either. Her breasts grew as well, and it is very effective.

I have been on Sprintec for two years now, and I have had absolutely no problems. Before Sprintec, I was on Yaz, and I had a lot of problems with it, from spotting to sever depression. After switching to Sprintec, all of those issues went away. I know everyone's body reacts to these pills differently, but Sprintec has worked very well for me. I would suggest it to anyone.
