I took Necon for over 5 years, my pharmacy switched me to Nortrel 1 year ago, now I am having daily headaches. I am planning to switch back to Necon which I had no side effects with.

I've only been on this pill for 2 weeks, but I've had experience with others. I absolutely hate this experience so far. Sick to my stomach EVERYDAY nearly vomitting but affraid to hurl the pill and therefore be pointless to take it. HORRID cramps and spotting.. followed up with slight mood swings. I would not recomend this product.
