Comment:
So I was extremely excited to start this birth control. I had been on a few different ones. I switched to this one because my insurance changed and this was the easiest option. I got implanon taken out. I loved implanon and had it in for 3 years. I switched to tri-sprintec. The first week went pretty well. I started it on the sunday after my period like it said to. The first few days I was REALL ... Show Full Comment
