Tri-Sprintec Overview

Ethinylestradiol (EE) is an estrogen medication which is used widely in birth control pills in combination with progestins.[7][8] In the past, EE was widely used for various indications such as the treatment of menopausal symptoms, gynecological disorders, and certain hormone-sensitive cancers. It is usually taken by mouth but is also used as a patch and vaginal ring.[7][12] The general side effects of EE include breast tendernes...

Missed pills, early period when to star new pack

Okay so basically I was about a week into my tri-sprintec pill when I had to get a new packet, but I couldnt get it for 6 days (long story), I started having fairly heavy bleeding about 3 days after missing pills, heavier than I usually have at the start of my period and have been bleeding 3 days now, I am unsure if I should take the new packet now or wait to let this "period" play out? Also (so sorry for the long post) before this happened I was going to be done with my regular period the week before leaving on a vacation now I will start the day before, which I desperately do not want! Is there anyway I can do this so my next period will be moved? Preferably to where it was suppose to be before? Or skip it without worrying about BTB? Today is 10/3 and is my 3rd day of bleeding...

Headaches with neausia on Tri-sprintec

I have been taking Tri-sprintec for a year now. For the past view months I have been getting anywhere from mild to severe headaches with neausia. They do effect my everyday life. They make me really sensitive to light and move ment. Does anyone else have this as a result of the pill? ## I have been experiencing the same side effects. I don't feel well at all. I couldn't figure out why I was feeling this way. I think it is because of this medication. ## That can be a typical side effect of oral contraceptives, including this one, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, irregular bleeding, weight changes, and mood changes. You might want to consult with your doctor about trying a different oral contraceptive, since this might not be the best one...

Tri-Sprintec - When can I expect my next period?

I started my first pack of tri-sprintec on 6/22, as per my doctor. Apparently it went against my natural cycle, as my period came as scheduled on 6/26 and lasted until 7/2 (a bit longer than normal). I have continued to take the pills as prescribed and understand that my body needs to adjust to the hormones, but should I expect another period to come when I start the white pills (on 7/13)? I know that ultimately, I will end up there since that is the point, as they are the inactives, I just want to be prepared. Thank you! ## Hello, Elizabeth! How are you? It is normal to experience irregular bleeding for the first 3 months, or so, while your body adjusts to the hormones. The FDA lists other side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and weight changes. And yes, you w...

sprintec 28 birth control start date

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?? ## i am taking sprintec how ever i forgot to take pills for 2 days so i also had intercourse on those 2 days what is the chances i could have conceve ## 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 c...

Tri sprintec birth control missed pill

Last month I accidentally took two pills in one day and the next time I just took one like nothing happened. When it was time to take this month's pack I waited and skipped a day to get back on track with the days. I usually get my period Monday night or Tuesday morning but it hasn't came yet. Am I going to get a period? ## Hello, Kay! How are you? Your hormone levels have likely been thrown off, a bit, by the doubling up and then skipping a day. It may take awhile for things to balance back out. Have you gotten your period, yet? You may skip, or it may come later. If you're very concerned, then you should speak to your doctor. The FDA lists the typical side effects of hormonal contraceptives as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, breakthrough bleed...

skipping a period

I am currently taking Tri-Sprintec and my boyfriend is coming home on leave for a week. I am going to be on my period that week. I was wondering if I could just skip the white pills and just start a new pack and if that would make me skip a period? How safe or effective could that work? ## Yes, you can do this, it is something women have been doing for years. It is perfectly safe and allows to skip your period when needed, one of the advantages of being on birth control. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## hello there! the link didnt work but thank you for your help. but i have another question. even though the 3 weeks of active pills are different colors which means they contain a different amount of hormones.. would the whole skipping the sugar pills still work? and your pr...

stopped taking Tri-Sprintec

I started my new pack and only took three pills. Because I missed so many I just decided to stop it all together. Trying to get pregnant. Now I've been off for about two weeks. I'm ovulating this week. Now I am having cramps and very light spotting. Am I going to start my period early because I stopped taking it on day three? ## Hello, Heather! How are you doing? Has anything changed? Yes, that can occur, since this is a hormonal contraceptive, as classified by the FDA. The cramping can also be a withdrawal effect, you may also experience headache and other PMS-like symptoms. In a few weeks, however, things should return to normal, if not, then please consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Looks like I started my menstralcycle early. It's very lights...

This I've never dealt with I would like to point out that (I'm 5'8, 335 LBS. women) any thought to what I may be experiencing also prior to this event I walked 5k every day on a 3 week raw life style W/O any(minimal) Animal products ;-) ## Hello, KattyBUG! How are you? Some women don't experience periods, while taking this oral contraceptive, so it's nothing to worry about, unless your doctor feels otherwise. Your weight could also be affecting it, as listed by the FDA, some oral contraceptives aren't as effective for overweight women. Your weight could also worsen the PCOS and mess up your natural body hormones, so you c...
