I recently switched to a new primary care doctor. Before then I have been taking Sprintec 28-day birth control pills for about 2 years. My new doctor gave me a prescription to a new birth control pill - Estarylla. She said both pills are generics so they are the same.
I want to make sure if these types of birth control are the same or if they have different ingredients, hormones, etc. Should I expect anything new with this new birth control pill or will it act the same as my old one? I never had any issues with my menstrual cycle, mood swings, etc. with Sprintec, so I want to make sure I don't have any new side effects with Estarylla.
Should I ask my doctor to switch back to Sprintec? Or is this something I don't need to worry about?
Thank you for your help!
