Effective: Sprintec is a very effective form of oral contraception when used correctly, which is taking one pill at the same time each day. With perfect use Sprintec and other oral contraceptives are 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. Sprintec is a higher estrogen oral contraceptive pill because it contains 35mcg of ethinyl estradiol.
