I have been on this birth control (spintec 28 tab
) since Jan. Previously, I have been off BC for over a year. I only need it to regulate my period since I am not having anymore children and my husband had a vasectomy 2 years ago. Usually the first few months of the pill you will get the side effects of acne, spotting, mood swings, weight gain etc. I got none of that and, in fact, my acne got better and spotting stopped.
