Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
ORTHO TRI-CYCLEN Lo and Sprintec contains same ingredients called as norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol. But the dose of them are different. Ortho cyclen Lo contains 0.180 mg of the progestational compound, norgestimate while Sprintec contains 0.250. And that is responsible for the side effects you are experiencing. While efficacy of the contraception is not compromised, but there can be different side effects. These side effects are likely to settle down in 2-3 months. So you do not need to worry about the pregnancy as both of them all likely to be same efficacy. But if these adverse effects linger on and continue; you may ask your doctor to shift you back to ortho tricyclen lo.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
