Some may say this is not long enough to tell anything...I have been on Necon for 5 days and have gained 5.5 pounds. Since noticing the weight gain I have been trying to eat healthier and exercise more but the weight just keeps adding up, I am calling my doctor today to hopefully switch to something else. I am not willing to wait an entire month and 20 pounds later to stop

Before this pill I was on Yaz for a couple years but $50 a month was getting a bit steep. I have been on NECON for 3.5 years and I can not say enough good things about it. I know when my period is coming down to the hour, no cramps what-so-ever, 4 day long and very light periods. I didn't experience breakthrough bleeding at all and I have lost 10lbs on it. One more thing, the other generics for Ortho Novum 1/35 do not react the same in my body at all and pharmacies seem to not understand that. Currently it costs me $0 a month with insurance and I haven't gotten pregnant.

I was given this to be a form of birth control. It caused me to spot for an abnormally long period of time. On the second month, I began having suicidal thoughts and I was very depressed. It is VERY out of my character to act that way so I immediately called my doctor and received a new pill Sprintec which I had when I was younger and works just fine. I never usually react to medication but this one really effected me. I know everyone's body is different but I would never recommend this just because I know what it is capable of.
