Many women who take oral contraceptive pills experience certain side effects and there are a few that are very common.
Two very common side effects include headache and dizziness. These two are particularly common if you have just started taking the birth control pill and will usually go away in time, if they do not, you may want to speak to your physician about switching to another brand.
Nausea is also a very common side effect and can last a few months. It may be helpful to take these pills with food in order to reduce the nauseous feeling. A change in the mood and mood swings is also a common side effect because birth control pills change your hormones and all contraceptive methods that involve hormones have a change of affecting the mood.
The use of fourth-generation birth control pills such as Yasmin and Yaz has been linked to much more serious side effects such as increased risk of blood clot or stroke. If this has happened to you or a loved one, contact the Yasmin blood clot lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187.
