Necon 1/35 is a combination of the two hormones — estrogen and progestin, comes in tablet form, and is taken by mouth at the same time every day. The hormone combination in Necon 1/35 prevents pregnancy primarily by stopping the release of an egg to interrupt ovulation. This oral contraceptive also thickens vaginal fluid to make it harder for sperm to reach an egg. If an egg is fertilized, Necon 1/35 creates changes to the uterine wall to prevent eggs from attaching. Fertilized eggs that don’t attach are passed out of the body. Our team at Nurx™ can prescribe Necon 1/35 at special request or can offer the generic equivalent Nortrel 1/35 for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance.

Necon 1/35 comes in a blister pack of 28 color-coded tablets. The first 21 yellow pills contain the same dose of the hormones estrogen and progestin.

Once the pack is complete, start the next whether or not you have your period or if it has not yet ended.

Although it is infrequent, the use of oral contraceptives may aggravate symptoms for women with emotional disorders or a history of depression. Contact lens wearers might suffer vision changes or a change in tolerance to lenses. Oral contraceptives can interfere with lab test results. Consider alternative contraception if you are scheduled for tests or surgery.
Allergic reactions to Necon 1/35 are rare, but you should seek medical attention at the onset of allergy symptoms such as hives, difficulty breathing, or swelling of the face or tongue. Talk to your doctor about any conditions to choose the right contraceptive for you.

Minor side effects are fairly common with the use of any medication. Women using Necon 1/35 most often report side effects like weight fluctuations and fluid retention as well as nausea and vomiting. Symptoms usually alleviate within the first few months of use. Nausea and vomiting can be lessened by taking your medication before bedtime or with a meal.

- Can I Take Necon 1/35 With Other Medications?

- Can I Breastfeed While Taking Necon 1/35?
Although only a few instances of complications have been reported, keep in mind that contraceptive medication can be passed to the baby through breast milk.
