Hi Katie the two are not the same - Ovral contains
ethinyl estradiol 0.05 mg and norgestrel 0.5 mg, whereas each active Oralcon tablets contains levonorgestrel 150 mcg and ethinyl estradiol 30 mcg.

Teherefore, in terms of ingredients, Oralcon and Nordette is the same, but not Oralcon and Ovral.

I was told to take Nordette as I have Endometriosis - I have now been given Oralcon - what are the differences? Is it also effective for Endometriosis?
