Does the pill have side effects?


Lorraine

Here are some common side effects of the pill:

* bleeding between periods
* weight gain
* nausea
* breast tenderness
* headaches
* mood changes
* blood clots (usually occur only in women over 35 who smoke)

Some women do not experience any of these. Studies have also shown that symptoms decrease after 3 months of use.

I heard pills can sometimes cause DVT (deep vein thrombosis)

some good side effects for me:

1. no cramps
2. lighter period
3. no skin breakouts like acne

Again, these differ from person to person. Other people still get cramps while on the pill

tender breasts but it has helped my period get regular and lighter too.
