I was on Necon for a few years until my pharmacy changed my prescription to Nortel 1/35 (they told me it was the EXACT same as Necon). Since being on Nortrel, I have had HORRIBLE breakouts on my chin & jawline - I'm talking large, cystic acne that will not go away!

I have been on this BC for about 5 months and it is very effective. So far the only side effects I have had is headaches around the time my period is coming on and when I first started taking it my stomach was in knots for about a week.

I took this pill for almost a year. It worked well. I never got pregnant.

BAD PILL. I am nauseous everyday on this pill. It's like I have morning sickness every morning.
