We've started my daughter on sprintec 28 birth control pills 21 days ago to regulate her menstrual cycle. She started her period 13 days after she starrted taking the pill - this is the 11th day and she is still bleeding. Very heavy at times. I did not know she had to be on her period when she was to take her first pill. She was not. My question - should she stop taking them? Or what should we do??

The chance is slight, but it is there. You run the risk of pregnancy anytime you miss a pill.

You need to find some way to make sure you remember to take them in the future.

You do not have to be on your period to start Sprintec. You can however start it on your first day of your period or the first Sunday after your menstrual cycle.

Belen Says:

OMG ! I started on Sprintec 28 day on a Sunday, not after my period. I got my period 3 weeks later & have been bleeding for 10 days now & no signs of it stopping. It is heavy & then medium & bright red. I have a usually late period but it never goes over 5 days of bleeding so this is very different for me. I am sort of scared, i don't know what could be happening. :/ I am calling the doctor ASAP tomorrow. I'll keep ya posted on what they tell me. Belen

My period started on june 28th, and I started taking sprintec on july 9, I had never been on the pill or any other type of birth control before, and on july 20th(about 11 days taking the pill) I had intercource without any backup form, do I have chances of getting pregnant?

I just got the prescription from my doctor yesterday and filled it with out doing my regular research on birth control pills. While searching I realize there are so many unwanted side effects that I don't want. I'm so scared now to try the pills, because I've had the depo shot that made my hair fall out and I saw that was one of the side effects. So now I'm scared. I also noticed it can cause weight gain which I don't want either, especially since I've lost a lot of weight and I still want to lose 20 more pounds before Christmas. I've been on the generic brand of Yasmin(Orcella) and I had no side effects in the beginning then I started braking out. The side effects are bad and I'm scared out of my wits to take these pills. Bloating, cramps, acne and etc. That doesn't sound appealing at all especially for someone in her early 30s, but my doctor wants me on these pills to regulate my period. I'm going to try it and blog to let you guys know what happen.

I have not had a normal menstrual cycle in years and I was told that birth control could regulate my cycle. I am now on Tri-sprintec, this is my first time taking birth control pills and I just wanted to know if the birth control will help my cycle to come on its own or will I have to take birth control forever to actually get a cycle?

Annette Says:

My daughter just started taking sprintec. She wants to quit taking them because she is getting very emotional and crying a lot. She is also very upset about the possibilities of gaining weight. I know that some medications cause side effects that go away after your body gets used to them. I don't want her to quit taking them if these side effects will go away, but right now she says they make her hate herself. Does anyone have any input on this?

I would talk to your doctor about it. She might need a different amount of mg for her, that or a different type of birth control.
