I have used Zenchent since having my last child 3 1/2 years ago, mostly without problems (or so I thought, before reading all these reviews!). A few months ago I started skipping periods like crazy, which had only happened a couple of times before. I skipped one, had a normal 4 days of bleeding, skipped 2, then had a normal 4 days of bleeding last cycle, and now this current cycle I've been ... Show Full Comment

I felt the need to review after reading all of the negative reviews on here. I've been using Zenchent for many years (Ovcon 35 before that), and have had no problems.

I constantly felt stressed/depressed and frequently cried for no reason. This drug almost ruined my relati ... Show Full Comment

I went to my doctor for birth control, no issues with having my cycle regularly. I started Zenchent on the 1st day of my cycle and have been bleeding now for almost 2 weeks. I've had birth control before and this one I have to say is not effective. I have cramps, clots, mood swings and bloating. I would not recommend this pill and will stick with the brand birth control pills in the future ... Show Full Comment

I have never in my life experience anything like this. I have not had a cycle since the end of April. My ankles are swollen beyond belief, migraines, which I never get headaches, nausea, and high blood pressure,hot flashes and cold sweats. Discontinued meds and hopefully this review helps someone else, because I thought I was losing my mind.
