This pill worked great for pregnancy. My skin cleared up A LOT. Helped a lot with my cramps, and ovarian cysts. I had to stop taking it because my blood pressure went up after almost a year being on it. I did experience headaches, moodiness, no sex drive, bigger breast, breast tenderness.

Since my pharmacy switched me to Necon from Nortrel a month ago, I have developed a bad rash on my back, HORRIBLE acne on my chin/neck, migraines for days at a time, severe dizziness, and nausea. I just figured out that it was from this pill and will be calling my doctor/pharmacy tomorrow and stopped taking the pill immediately. I think I am allergic to it and experiencing horrifying side effects. ... Show Full Comment
