Re: Sprintec (generic of Ortho Cyclen)
You've only been using OC for 3 months. Most practitioners recommend using a new birth control for AT LEAST 3 months to allow the side effects to stop.
Many birth control pills will cause your skin to get worse before it gets better. OC isn't approved to treat acne, but it's sister pill, Ortho TriCyclen is. Regardless, the sudden surge of hormones can cause your skin to break out. Sometimes this problem goes away, sometimes it doesn't.
It can take awhile to become regular as well.
The side effects have absolutely nothing to do with you taking the generic formulation. It seems that the drug just may not be agreeing with you at this point. It's your decision whether or not to change brands again, but realize that you've used 3 different birth control pills over the last couple of months-- you're body isn't regulated yet, so you might still have problems with another pill.
