I've been taking sprintec for one month and because of severe side affects and no response from doctors i have chosen to stop taking the pill. the main problem i had while taking it was my period would not end i have had it for 16 days straight. my question is how long do you think it will take for my hormones to sort out and the bleeding to stop now that i've stopped taking it? it was clear that the bleeding was a result of the sprintec.

i am very concerned, thank you for your responses.

Re: question?

It's not normal to bleed for 16 days consecutively. I was also on tri-sprintec and chose to stop after a month as well. I hated the way it made me feel. I bled for about 5 days and then my cycles returned to normal.

You should call your doctor and see if there is anything else going on. That amount of bleeding certainly cannot be safe.

Re: question?

Thank you so much for your response i've grown to become very frustrated and upset with this situation. Not having a mom and dealing with these things is difficult. Your words are comforting, I really appreciate it. My doctor is supposed to call me back sometime tomorrow! Hopefully this is something easily fixed.
