Switching-Ovcon 35 to Ortho Novum 1/35

Due to the price of Ovcon, my doctor suggested I switch to Ortho Novum 1/35 or equiv. generic. She said they are almost the same. Does anyone agree or disagree? Anyone been on both of these? I have liked Ovcon for and worry about changing again.
Thanks

I think Ortho Novum has a little more progestin, but they both have the same amount of estrogen and same type of progestin.

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.

If you're looking for something comparable to Ovcon-35 as far as the ingredients go, you should probably ask about Brevicon. It has 0.5 mg of progesterone and 35 mcg of estrogen. I believe that the type of progesterone in it is the same as in Ovcon. I don't know about the price of it, though. Hope this helps.
