    Comment:
    Necon 1/35 has helped so much with my PMS symptoms and it's been effective as a birth control. I recommend it. Notes: I gained 3 lbs ~2 months after I began the pills, but it's been 6 now and I haven't gained additional weight, so I am okay with that. I tend to get more emotional and easily upset (not characteristic for me) than I ever was off the pills about a week before my perio ... Show Full Comment

    I dont know if this has happened to anybody else, But I have noticed that after taking this pill for about a year that my hair has been thinning on the top of my head. im not positive it is the pill, But I have no past history of hair loss and neither does any woman in my family. Has anybody else experienced this as well?

While on it I experienced abnormal weight gain I can not shed, tender swollen breasts, nausea, dizziness, migraines, overall crummy feelings. Like I am sick. Actually started to think maybe I was pregnant. Also my periods went down to a very light flow only lasting about a day (not complaining there) overall I am ... Show Full Comment

    I had taken a different birth control for almost 11 years until my body started rejecting it (apparently that is possible!). Main reason for using birth control: I have really heavy periods. I switched to Necon. Not only have I lost a lot of weight (I can't seem to gain any), but I've had crazy mood swings, and itchy swollen eyes every morning... Time to try out something else!

    While this pill is easy to use, It has not been effective for me. I am still bleeding since starting the pack and I am in the middle of the last week of pills. I have gained over 5 lbs in the first month of using it. I have been experiencing nausea, severe headaches, especially around my eye are, and and moderate to severe dizziness around 2 hours after taking the pill. I have been on other BC pil ...
