Thanks for writing us.

Duoluton-L contains levonorgestrel + ethinylestradiol and used to treat ovarian cyst. Low carbohydrate diet, hormonal medication, regular physical exercise to control body weight are the key component of treatment protocol for ovarian cyst.

Side effects: Nausea & vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, headache, abdominal pain, breast tenderness, irregular spotting, depression, skin rashes, disturbance of appetite, weight changes, fluid retention, change in libido, hair loss, thrombosis etc. However, these are seen in long term used and vary women to women.

Initial pill user may find some side effects till the body is adjusted with hormone. They will overcome with the time.
