Difference Between Tri Sprintec Vs Sprintec
Sprintec has the same level of hormone throughout the entire 3 weeks of active pills (this is called monophasic), whereasTri-Sprintec has 3 different levels of hormones over the 3 weeks of active tablets (this is called triphasic). Everyone reacts differently to these types of birth control pills. Both are very effective at preventing pregnancy when taken as prescribed.

Is it safe to take tri-sprintec and next choice? What are risks? Do I need take next choice if I don't take b/c at same time daily? Worried please help
Contraception: 1. An emergency contraceptive like Next Choice can be taken if an oral contraceptive like tri-sprintec is used (inconsistently or for less than a month). 2, you don't need to take an emergency contraceptive if you have not missed daily pills (not taking at same time does not mean that you are not consistent). 3. There are risks with any medications - you can look up respective meds at drugs. Com. ...Read more
Call the doc: Who put u on that pill, and ask your doc, I do not prescribe that generic pill, I use mostly monphasic pills, my #1 pill is loloestrin and if my pts want to skip the period they do not take the placebo pills and start a new pack, this works much better with a monophasic pill than a tri- phasci pill that u are on. ...Read more

One week: I assume you mean for contraception. There are other reasons to take a birth control pill, but they work to prevent pregnancy by preventing ovulation. It takes about one week to reliably prevent ovulation or to avoid pregnancy from recent ovulation. If you want to be more sure of prevention start the pill with a menstrual cycle and it is reliable as your cycle is ending. ...Read more

Sprintec uses a combination of Norgestimate and Ethynyl Estradiol and is effective contraception. It is a "third generation" pill using a newer progesterone that some woman tolerate better than the older-generation progesterones.

Insurance plan: There is no one good birth control pill. A woman may want to try whatever her insurance covers, if no insurance coverage, then take the least expensive, if that one does not work for an individual woman, then a gynecologist needs to be involved. It is always good for a woman to write down the birth control pills that she has been on in the past, and which ones have or have not worked. ...Read more
Skip Placebos: TriSprintec (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) has 21 active pills followed by 7 placebo pills. If you want to skip one period, take the 21 active pills as always. Then on day 22, start a new pack of triSprintec (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) and take it normally instead of taking the placebos. You might have some breakthrough bleeding at some point but it will likely be after your honeymoon is over. You are still protected from pregnancy. Best wishes! ...Read more
Probably not: There is no interaction found between steroids and birth control pills.

My dermatologist she had prescribed me tri-sprintec but after reading the review's I am scared to gain weight, what can I do to not gain weight?
Just started tri-sprintec. Completed 2 full weeks and am on my 2nd day of the 3rd wk. Started brown discharge started on 4/2 and still coming. Normal?
Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very normal on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. Just continue taking. ...Read more
My pharmacy switched me from tri-sprintec to tri-previfem this month. Why would they do that? Should I be concerned?
Because that is: The generic they made a deal with both pills are generic but you may or may not like the new pill as much since it may have different amounts of hormones, I always prescribe brand name pills for my pts, use generics for other meds, my #1 pill is loloestrin by law a brand name has to have 90% of the active drug and most have 98%, a generic only has to have 72% at the least which can cause problems! ...Read more
