I was on this pill for 5 years. Got off it when I decided to get pregnant. After I had my daughter I got back on. This pill is very effective. I have no cramping and my periods completely stopped as it did before I even had my daughter. I consulted my doctor and she said that is does happen to a small percentage of females. If Im concerned she can switch my pill. I wasn't concerned so I stayed ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I switched to this birth control because I was having irregular bleeding. My irregular bleeding stopped and my periods were lighter. I have always cramped enought that advil would take care of it, but on this medication I have to take painkillers for my cramps. That is the only downside I've experienced. Everything else is great.

Comment:
Necon has been helpful. Although I used if for birth control, I was having 2 periods a month on a previous pill (have never been regular). Necon decreased my periods at first, but I have since been having 2 periods a month again. My periods are super light and last 3 to 5 days, but liner only. PMS symptoms are mild (irritability mostly) with no cramping. Necon is very effective.
