Sprintec is a daily contraceptive pill that combines two hormones—estrogen and progestin—to prevent pregnancy. Other perks? Some women report having lighter periods and fewer cramps during periods. It may also help treat acne. Sprintec can interact with antibiotics, seizure medicines and other drugs, so be sure to tell your doctor about any medications you are taking. It should also not be used by women over 35 who smoke, or women with a history of breast cancer. Remember, oral contraceptive pills do not protect against STIs (sexually transmitted infections) like herpes and chlamydia—only condoms do that!
