Comment:
Periods are short (2-3 days) and I only need to use light tampons. Mild cramping with each period but that is tolerable compared to severe cramping I'd get without BCP. Acne improved greatly.

Comment:
I am a 29 year old woman, and I took Necon 777 as a method of birth control. I only remained on this formulation for two months, because during that I had several strange side effects during the third week of pills (highest dose). I had a dramatic increase in anxiety and got yeast infections both times. It was pretty awful. These symptoms drove me crazy until we figured out it was my BCP and so ... Show Full Comment
