I think that Ortho Novum is certainly worth a try. The small difference in progesterone probably won't be effect you.
Ovcon has a little less than half the amount of progestin than Ortho Novum.
Ovcon contains 0.4mg norethindrone and 35mcg estrogen
Ortho Novum 1/35 contains 1mg norethindrone and 35mcg estrogen.
