Necon 7/7/7

Necon 7/7/7 is a hormone-based combination birth control pill. This means Necon 7/7/7 contains a combination of progestin and estrogen hormones which work in tandem to prevent pregnancy. Its hormonal combination can also provide other positive benefits, including making periods lighter and more regular and treating acne. Its convenience and low number of potential side effects make Necon 7/7/7 a popular choice for many women.

Our team at Nurx™ can prescribe Necon 7/7/7 at special request or can offer the generic equivalent Nortrel 7/7/7 for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $25 without insurance.

FAQ

  • How Is Necon 7/7/7 Used?

    Necon 7/7/7 prevents pregnancy by stopping ovulation. It also alters your cervical mucus and the lining of your uterus to create an environment which substantially reduces the risk of fertilization.

    You should take one Necon 7/7/7 pill daily by mouth. Take your pill at the same time each day in the order shown on the package. If you experience nausea, try taking your birth control pills with food. Store your Necon 7/7/7 pills away from children, moisture, and heat at normal room temperature (between 59 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit).

  • Is Necon 7/7/7 Easy to Get?

    Necon 7/7/7 is readily available from most pharmacists. However, it does require a prescription. At Nurx™, we can save you time by providing an online consultation with a member of our medical team, writing your prescription, and sending your Necon 7/7/7 to you in the mail.

  • What Precautions Should I Take Before Starting Necon 7/7/7?

    As with any birth control pill, you should consult a member of our medical team before you start taking Necon 7/7/7. They can help determine whether you are at high risk of developing an allergic reaction, which could cause swelling, itching, hives, or difficulty breathing. Necon 7/7/7 rarely causes these side effects, but they may result if you are allergic to ethinyl estradiol, norethindrone, or one of its other ingredients.

    If you are diabetic, you should monitor your blood sugar level carefully when taking Necon 7/7/7. If you notice this level increase or that you are feeling thirstier or urinating more frequently than usual, the contraceptive may be impacting your diabetes.

    People with some medical conditions must also be careful when taking Necon 7/7/7. Make sure to mention if you have a history of breast or uterine cancer, heart attacks or heart disease, strokes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, blood clots, circulation problems, liver problems, depression, migraines, or low thyroid levels.

  • Are There Any Known Side Effects?

    Taking any hormonal birth control pill, including Necon 7/7/7, puts you at risk of some side effects. However, the most common side effects are fairly mild. They include nausea and vomiting, headaches, breast tenderness, fluid retention around the stomach, ankles, and feet, elevated blood pressure, spotting, missed or irregular periods, and changes in your weight. If you experience these side effects at first, they may disappear in a few months when your body becomes used to the hormones.

    More serious side effects are very rare, including lumps in the breast, mood disorders, severe stomach and abdominal pain, significant vaginal bleeding, jaundice, and dark urine. Stroke-like symptoms such as pain in your jaw, chest, and arm, feeling confused, dizzy or weak, sudden shortness of breath or rapid breathing, irregular sweating, changes in vision, and slurred speech may also occur in extremely rare cases. If you experience any of these severe side effects, seek immediate medical help.

    These side effects sound scary, but they are incredibly rare. It's much more common to experience positive side effects taking Necon 7/7/7. These include more regular, lighter, and less painful periods, clearer skin, and a reduced risk of developing ovarian cysts.

  • Can I Take Necon 7/7/7 With Other Medications?

    You can continue taking Necon 7/7/7 with most other medications. However, some medications can interact with Necon 7/7/7, causing negative side effects or making your birth control less effective. That's why it's so important to discuss any medications, supplements, or recreational drugs you're taking with a member of our medical team before getting a Necon 7/7/7 prescription.

    Some medications that can interfere with Necon 7/7/7 include aromatase inhibitors, including anastrozole and exemestane, ospemifene, tamoxifen, tizanidine, tranexamic acid, certain combination products used to treat chronic hepatitis C, including ombitasvir, paritaprevir, and ritonavir with or without dasabuvir.

    Some other medications and supplements can decrease the number of birth control hormones in your body. Necon 7/7/7 may not work as effectively if you take it with griseofulvin, modafinil, rifamycins, including rifampin and rifabutin, St. John's wort, anti-seizure medications including barbiturates, carbamazepine, felbamate, phenytoin, primidone, topiramate, and HIV medications including nelfinavir, nevirapine, and ritonavir.

  • Is There a Generic Version of Necon 7/7/7?

    Pirmella 7/7/7 is the generic version of Necon 7/7/7. It contains the same active ingredients in the same dose and performs in the same way when used as prescribed. Since it is a generic version, Pirmella 7/7/7 is more affordable than Necon 7/7/7. We offer both birth control pills through Nurx.

  • Who Makes This Drug?

    Necon 7/7/7 is made by Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc., part of pharmaceutical brand Allergan plc. Allergan plc is headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, but has operations in more than 100 countries around the world, including in Parsippany, New Jersey.

  • How Is Necon 7/7/7 Different to Necon 1/35?

    Necon 7/7/7 and Necon 1/35 are both birth control pills made by the same company. However, Necon 7/7/7 is a triphasic birth control pill while Necon 1/35 is a monophasic birth control pill. In other words, packs of Necon 7/7/7 have three different phases with three different hormones. Necon 1/35 has pills with just one strength of hormones through each pack.

    The three phases of Necon 7/7/7 aim to mimic the menstrual cycle. This pill is ideal for people who remember to take their pill. If you are a little forgetful, you might find Necon 1/35, which keeps hormones at a more balanced level throughout the month, easier to use.

  • What Should I Do If I Miss a Pill?

    Necon 7/7/7 is most efficient at preventing pregnancy when taken daily. If you miss an active pill, take two pills the next day, then resume taking one pill daily. If you miss a reminder pill, just take your next single pill as normal on the day you remember. If you miss two or more active pills, use a backup method of birth control for at least seven days. You won't need backup birth control to prevent pregnancy if you miss your reminder pills because they are only there to keep you in the habit of taking your pill.
