FAQ

Does Sprintec help with heavy periods?

If you are experiencing heavy periods or painful cramps, Sprintec can make your symptoms less severe. Our doctors are here to help - if you have heavy periods, let us know in the consultation so our doctors can make sure you find the right fit.

Does Sprintec make you gain weight?

Like most modern birth control pills, Sprintec lacks estrogen levels that are high enough to cause weight gain. Abundant recent evidence shows that there is no causal link between modern birth control and weight gain (aside from the shot, Depo Provera). If weight gain is a concern for you or you experience it after starting birth control, reach out to us so our doctors can discuss your options with you.

Does Sprintec help with acne?

Birth control has long been prescribed as treatment for acne. If acne is a concern for you, let us know in the consultation and our doctors will help you find the right brand for you.

How long after I start taking Sprintec am I fully protected against pregnancy?

Sprintec is effective 48 hours after you begin taking it. If you have vaginal sex within 48 hours of starting a progestin-only pill, you should use a back-up contraception (like condoms) to prevent pregnancy.
