 I'm taking Sprintec...I wasn't sure if anyone else was taking this as well. I've been having migraines soooo freakin bad this whole week and some people say it could be the bc but ive been taking this for 4 months now and its just starting...Any advice would be great. Thanks.

I have the Mirena IUD because BC pills all had sucky side effects. I love it.

Trilevlen, I believe?  It's a three-phase pill pack and I've taken it for the better part of the last decade that I've been on birth control.  Besides taking the mini pill while BFing and a short time taking Yaz after my son weaned.  I don't experience any negative side effects on this BC, so I won't fix what isn't broken.

I have been on most of them.I got migraines from certain ones especially mircette! If you think its the bc ask your dr to switch you to something else.I liked the nuvaring the best but I'm not on hormones anymore....I'm 34 and I smoke not a good combination so dh got snipped! Do you smoke? That increases side effects...

Pregnancy. lol

Never heard of that, but any kind of generic hormonal pill gives me migraines. Have to have the low dose of Yaz, whatever that's called. Try the lower doses and DON'T skip a pill if you're not ready for a baby.

right now I am on the baby in my belly pill :) I will be on a mini pill after she is born though. I was on that for 39 months. I can't remember right now what normal pill I was taking.

None. Birth control messed up my body =(
Instead, I track my cycle and don't have sex at "o" time =)

i'm on loseasonique...same thing just lower levels of hormones or something. i've only been on it for about 2 weeks, but so far no complaints.

does it really give you only 4 periods a year?
