Most women don’t get any side effects but some of the most common side effects when you start using the pill include nausea, headaches, tender breasts, changes to your mood, bloating and breakthrough bleeding.
A lot of the time, these side effects are pretty mild and will normally go away as you continue using the pill, usually after the first two to three months.
But if you get any side effects that concern you, or don’t go away after a couple of months of use, tell us. Our clinician may suggest moving you on to a different pill.
Serious side effects like allergic reactions or blood clots are rare, but you should go to your nearest hospital right away if you get any signs of these.
