Q.

Oralcon Contraceptive &  serious side effects

Hi,
I''ve started on Oralcon about 2 weeks ago and have been experiencing very bad mood swings, irritability &  depression. So much that people around me complain. Also I''m dead tired all the time, nauseous, and extremely dizzy - so much I fell down because of it. This only started in the last week or so. Could the pill cause this reactions and should I immediately stop using it? I''ve also heard this is the generic of Nordette, and that Nordette has been taken off the market - but why?
Thank you.

It is common to have side effects when starting the Pil. These usually get better in the first two months. It is usually issues of cost which cause originals to be taken off the market and generics to be used.

Hi I took two white pills for three days then one white pill to end the white pills quicker. I then started with the red and also took two but only took two red pills twice. So I had unprotected sex therefore my question is Will i fall pregnant as I didn't get my period yet ? I've been using oralcon for 3 months and never skipped a pill. Thanks

Started using OralCon 7days ago. Its my 1st time,I'm taking them to regulate my hormones and periods. On sunday I mysteriously started getting sick,I've never been sick like this before,it started as a headache,the progressed I got a high temp I had to sleep in the nude. Decided to take some pain meds cause of the horrible headache,I slept bt monday morning I woke up worse,congested nose,sore painfully dry throat. Its wednesday today and I'm experiencing diarrhea. Is this a coincidence? I don't think so. Could it be my body adjusting to the pill? Pls help I feel horrible?

What scares me about all the comments is that I have been using this pill for almost 2 months now - absolutely no side effects. It is like im not on anything - makes me wander if it is effective with me at all.

Hi, I've been on this pill for longer than a year. This pill is not good whatsoever, yes, it does affect people differently, but since i've been on this pill, i've been nervous, hands keep shaking, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, forgetful, bloatedness, abdominal pain, sore breasts & bad mood swings, that comes with irritability. I had pregnant signs, it was horrible. I decided to go off, and everything is going back to normal again, i feel like the normal person that i was before starting that.

I would just like to say that I have been on Oralcon since Nordette was taken off the market a couple of years ago and I have had no problems. What we all have to remember is that every single one of us is different and our bodies don't all react the same, especially if you are judging the product within the first few weeks of use when your body is still adjusting to it. Safest thing to do is always get a second opinion from a professional before trying something new. I for one think Oralcon is awesome and have no regrets about using it.

no its not ..but what i suggest to people they musn't just take preventions without consulting a doctor...coz our womb doesn't accept same thing as all does..that why you find people saying their pregnant while they were taking pills.

I've used so many pills and even the injection for the past year, but nothing helped me....I was bleeding for a year and 2 months, but finally stopped 2 weeks ago after going for a procedure. I've started using Oralcon for 2 weeks now, and now I'm getting all these pimples which I never had before, I'm very moody. Should I stop using this pill, because I really don't wanna see 2 or 3 new pimples every morning when I wake up?

i was taking ovral 28 for 3 months and i suddenly developed constant headache, severe one. my las period was even shorter and headache tables were no longer helping. my doctor examined me, i was soclose to having a strong and she told me to stop the pill immediately. i have been off it for 2 days now and the headache is so mild i feel a lot better. i was considering ORALCON, but you scared me, i quit. my husband agrees we should just stick to condoms, its safer

Hi. I was on Trigresgtral for 2 years after Triphasal was discontinued, then the clinic put me on Oralcon, WHAT A DISASTER!!!! I experienced emotional outbursts, depression and I menstruated for 3 weeks, I eventually picked up the courage to go see the doctor. He said that I must immediately stop with Oralcon and gave me a script for Logynon, I am finally back to normal.

Posted by: gynaedoc | 2011-08-16

It is common to have side effects when starting the Pil. These usually get better in the first two months. It is usually issues of cost which cause originals to be taken off the market and generics to be used.
