Necon is a Combination Oral Contraceptive (COC)

Until you are ready to start your family, Necon is available to help prevent an unplanned pregnancy. The last several years has seen an increase in the age of women starting a family. It could be that many women want to have their financial situation stable, establish a career, and are able to purchase a home. Perhaps it’s a medical reason for choosing not to have children now or at all. Whatever your reasons are, ask your doctor about Necon with Norethindrone/Ethinyl Estradiol. Necon contains both progestin and estrogen and is available in different dosages, Necon 1mg/35mcg or Necon 1mg/50mcg. Discuss the dosage with your doctor to see which one may be better for you.

How Necon Works in Your Body

As you take Necon, your hormone levels are increased and this fools your body into thinking it is already pregnant. This means that there is no need for ovulation, however, there is still a small chance that an egg will mature and you will ovulate. Should this occur, Necon will also work to cause your cervical mucus to become thick so sperm will have a difficult time reaching and fertilizing an egg. The lining of your uterus will not grow to a proper thickness that can support the attachment of a fertilized egg so it will simply pass from your body. Even with all of these obstacles, there is still a chance of becoming pregnant.

Failure to Prevent a Pregnancy

It is very important that you take Necon at approximately the same time every day as not doing so can increase your risk of Necon failing to suppress ovulation. Your doctor can advise you on what to do should you happen to forget to take Necon for 1 or 2 days during the month or if you take them more than 12 hours apart. If you have a busy and hectic lifestyle, you or your partner can use a back-up form of birth control to also lower your risk of becoming pregnant.

Before You Start Taking Necon

Be absolutely certain you are not pregnant before starting Necon. Advise your doctor of other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal, dietary, or vitamin supplements. This will help your doctor determine if Necon is the best birth control for your lifestyle.

Proper Use of Necon

Tell your doctor if you are a smoker and are 35 years of age or older as birth control pills may raise your risk of serious health problems, including a stroke, heart attack, or blood clots. You may have to decide to stop smoking or try a different form of birth control with less health risks. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and away from pets.
