Okay over the past 33 days I've been on a birth control called Ovcon 50. It has been THE WORST experience with birth control ever. But this is what worries me. See I was put on the pill because I had 2 major ovarian cysts that ruptured. To prevent anymore they stuck me on this. I'm to take it for 3 months and I'm supposed to take it so it stops my period during this time. Right now I'm supposed to have my period. But I'm obviously not gonna have it. But instead I'm getting sharp pains on my ovaries. It hurts really bad to the point of me getting nausea. It's been going on for the last 3 days. Are the pains normal? What should I do?...please help Answered by Mindy Buchetto 4 months ago.

Can ovcon 50 birth control pills be used as plan b?
i remember my doctor saying something like that when she gave me the pills but can't remember. if i give an extra hormone pill to a friend who needs plan b, will it work as plan b? thanks! p.s. friend does not take birth control
Asked by Elinor Wydo 4 months ago.
This is definitely not the safe thing to do!!!! Giving anybody a prescription medication that was prescribed to you is not good at all. Giving this as a plan b medication is not a good idea either--it may produce excessive bleeding and other ill side effects to her. She should go in and get her own prescription medication. This is coming from an ob/gyn nurse!! Answered by Lianne Patellis 4 months ago.

Hey I'm a 19 year old college student, I'm on my schools insurance and they don't cover much of the cost of my medicine. I'm on ovcon 50 and I have to be on it because its a stronger birth control that stops my ovarian cysts from bursting and causing extreme pain and even infection. I use to get samples from the doctor but they arn't getting any for a long time. So now I don't know what to do, there isn't any generic like it either I tried that as well...Please help Answered by Karisa Danna 4 months ago.
Ovcon is a combination of two compounds - 0.035mg of Ethinyl Estradiol and 0.4mg of norethindrone, or 0.05 and 1mg (for Ovcon 50). These are both compounds that are available in an enormous variety. Ortho-Novum 1/35, Nortrel and Necon 1/35 are identical to Ovcon 35 and cost 50 and 30 dollars respectively. Ovcon 50 is harder to find an exact equivalent for. Could you use another form of estrogen? Estradiol is also in many birth control formulations? Anyway, here's a couple other brands that have the equiv. estrogen dose to Ovcon 50. Some of them use different forms and amounts of the progestin equivalent: Demulen 1/50, Zovia 1/50, Ogestrel, Nordiol. You may be able to tolerate these better, and they may be covered by your insurance company. Other than that, you just have to talk to your doctor, or see if you can perhaps get under your parents insurance via COBRA or some other method. Answered by Zachary Lecy 4 months ago.
Try DIM, u can get it on the net, i get o cysts too i once had one 5 liters before, that ended in surgery. DIM helps with everything hormonal, it helps digest bad estrogen which can cause o cysts, irregular periods, fat storage, moodiness, ect, best to take it with calcium d-glucarate Answered by Eda Blazich 4 months ago.

Are any of these birth control pills available over the counter...(witout prescription)?
Necon/ Norinyl/ Ortho-Novum /Ovcon-50/ Ovral/ Demulen/ Zovia...and do any of them cause you to break out in pimples or lead to breast cancer 4 days ago - 1 day left for voting
Asked by Torrie Smeenk 4 months ago.
If you live in the U.S., you have to have a prescription to get the birth control pill. Some people get acne from the pill, but it's more likely to clear up your skin. The pill may raise your risk of breast cancer slightly. If it runs in your family, you might consider using a different form of birth control. If cost is a concern, you might consider visiting Planned Parenthood. Answered by Marcel Shost 4 months ago.

Birth control question??
the pill i'm thinking about taking is NOT from my next pill pack...my doctor gave me a few extras just in case.
Asked by Blondell Dionne 4 months ago.
im taking ovcon 50 (which is a 28 day pill pack). i had a sunday start and was on the second to last pill before the sugar pills, but i dropped it on the floor of the movie theatre and took the last one instead, so now i need one for tonight. i have an extra one, but it is for the first day of the pill pack. so my question is, do all combination birth control pills have the same dosage? (other than the sugar pills of course) Answered by Dora Kum 4 months ago.
Yes they all are the same exact pills besides the sugar pills like you said. I would just go ahead and start your sugar pills. You may get your period a day early but thats about all. Or you can always take one from the next packet but then you will have to do that with all your pills. Answered by Royal Winbush 4 months ago.
In theory there is no reason why you can't just go on the sugar pills. It will bring your period on a day early, but nothing more. The caveat to this is if you had sex in the last 4 days. But it's a risk that is pretty minimal. Call your Doc and check, if you're worried. Answered by Joana Wickell 4 months ago.
My girlfriend missed a day of her birth control, how high are her chances of getting pregnant?
She's been taking OVCON 50 for about 1-1.5 years now, but around July 2011 she says she missed one day. On january 17 2012 the condom broke during sex, and we're not sure if shes pregnant or not. She's going to get tested next week, but I still want to know, considering how long shes been taking it,...

If she missed a pill last July it's not going to have the slighest effect on her risk of pregnancy in January. If she took all her pills in January, she's fine. Answered by Odilia Blatter 4 months ago.
