Re: Tri-Sprintec/ Ortho Tri cyclen LO
I was on ortho tri cyclen lo for about 4 years and i switched to sprintec two months ago. I believe I might of had a cyst before i started taking the ortho and when i started taking ortho the pain went away and never came back. I never had any side effects from ortho at all. I switched to sprintec i dunno a little over 2 months now. worst thing ever! The first month started off not too bad...some lower back pain my period came a day late which has NEVER happened. The second month was the worst my hair started falling out and is still falling out like crazy...extreme lower back pain...ab/ or ovary pain just some severe cramps...do not take sprintec...if you are doing well on ortho just stick with it...the price isnt worth switching to. Everyone reacts differently to birth control so you never know until you try but if you have no side effects now why switch. Im now off all bc and i never ever will go on it ever again no matter what...thats how bad my experience was. I also hear if youve been taking bc for a long period of time there are side effects when trying to get off of it. So now im waiting for my body to reajust to its natural normal state. If you decide to switch just make sure you are very cautious of the side effects...if you feel like something is not right i would suggest to get off it. The first month i felt like something wasnt right and i just waited and continued to take it and now my hair is falling out. Goodluck..i dont know what your situation is and i dont mean to scare you but from my experience birth control is just evil and i would rather be preg then go through what im going through now. Hope this helps and sorry again to scare you but this is trully my experience that i dont want anyone else to go through.
