I have been on Necon 1/35 for 2 years now. The doctor felt he had to have me on a stronger form of birth control since both of my children were the products of birth control that regulated my irregular cycles enough for me to conceive. My periods are very light and I have lost over 100 pounds due to my decreased appetite. I was 240 when I started, so it was a welcomed loss. It has calmed my endometriosis and PCOS significantly. Overall, few side effects for me and it has never let me down.

I'm 49 years old and I'm on the Leen 28. Only down side It made me gain so much weight and it was hard to take off. I did have a period for the first 6 months now I have no period. I do get a little cramping just like I'm going to start my period but that's about it. I still keep thinking my period will come but it doesn't. I have to admit it's nice....

I am almost 30 and was just prescribed Necon 1/50 (continuous) by my Dr. due to internal endometriosis (endometriosis in my uterus muscles) and was having pains equivalent to labor. So far it has helped a great deal, with only one painful breakthrough. I'll give it another few months to help. The next step is putting me through menopause. Yikes!

I started taking Zenchent 3 months ago, and have had TERRIBLE gas and stomach cramps. However, it's been wonderful at sorting out my heavy periods, and has reduced the heaviness of my bleeding.

I've been taking Necon now for 3 years and it has helped me have a lighter period and a normal one. I don't cramp as bad but I do think it has cause me to gain weight, I'm at the heaviest I've ever been, but it could be stress too, not sure.

I have been on necon for about thirteen years, i love it. When i first started birth control i was informed there are some cases of gaining weight, i was 140 then and 110 now. I really believe it took off some of my weight and helped with keeping it off. My periods went from five days to three when i started necon.

Are you taking the Necon as prescribed? Are you missing doses? Check with you physician to see if going on continuous (no placebo week) birth control therapy might work for you. As a young lady, I had extremely painful, paralizing periods before going on birth control. The pills did make the period 100% better. As I aged a bit more, I needed continuous birth control therapy to control the paralizing pains I felt with out the pill. No, I am not exaggerating. I was on birth control for well over 30 years.Yes, I know. However, without it, I would have had a horrible quality of life. Good luck and take good care of yourself.

I am taking it without the placebo week to halt my breakthrough week. This has completely stopped the hormonal headaches as my period has stopped.

It was the only medication with the least side effects
