Does anyone take ovcon 35?

Yes. Quite a few patients do. Standard estrogen dosage for oral contraceptive pills (ocp aka birth control pills) is about 35 micrograms (mcg). Low-dose pills can have as low as 20 mcg. Less estrogen means less side effects (breast tenderness, nausea, etc) but you may have a higher risk of having spotting or bleeding when you shouldn't. It's a balance that physicians are looking for.
