Common Side Effects Of Birth Control

Sep 3, 2008
Side effects are any marginal reactions caused by a particular therapy, not the therapeutic reaction a medicine or behavior was intended to create. In the case of birth control pills, the side effects can be both encouraging and negative too. Some of the profit includes predictable periods, lighter menstrual flow and less cramping. These can give a pleasant change for some women and life-enhancing release from disabling periods for others.

In fact, several women and girls actually take the pill for these benefits, even when they do not need birth control. However, birth control pills also present some common and irritating side effects that are not so welcome. Several are most obvious within the first few months of use, while others may only expand after many years.

Few noticeable side effects

1.Nausea - Many women feel nauseated in the first few days of pill use. If queasiness hits when first start taking the pill or when any new pack started, try to wait it out. In general, most women feel better pretty quickly. Be sure to take the pills at a usual time every day, not only for better protection but also as having to double the dose can make the nausea worse. Another idea that might help is to take the pill in the evening, so that the nausea occurs while sleeping and so goes by unnoticed.

2.Abnormal bleeding - For many women, it takes a few months of being on the pill before their menstrual cycle regulates itself. One may have a small amount of bleeding in between cycles or a full-blown period that comes early. This is not a sign that the pill is failing. If someone is still experiencing irregular periods after four months, talk to the practitioner about the options.

3.Absent periods - It is fairly common for women to lose their periods after a few years of pill use. Many women happen to concern that they are not getting properly cleaned out when they do not shed the uterine lining each month. While lack of periods can have health risks for women who are not on the pill, it usually does not cause any medical problems in pill users.

Few more irritating problems
If someone is getting headaches since starting on the pill, try to pay notice to when in the pill pack the headaches are worst. Estrogen gives some women headaches, requiring them to take a pill that has a lower estrogen dose or is progesten only. Some get headaches as the hormone levels drop at the end of the pack.
