Experience

Started taking for PCOS, but cramping and constipation consistent with PCOS that disappeared with other pills returned with Tri-Sprintec. No noticeable mood or weight changes other than breast enlargement. Because this pill has increasingly more estrogen in each week of the pill, some symptoms like stomach issues mimic normal pill-absent PMS.
