welcome to HealthcareMagic
Sprintec 28 is a oestrogen+progesterone combination and a regular daily contraceptive.It is in no way an emergency contraceptive so it is not to be used.If you want to use a emergency contraceptive get it prescribed by consulting a doctor and if you are sexually active and do it often then it will be better to take sprintec 28 as a daily contraceptive to avoid pregnancy.
