Hi,

LD tablet contains both ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel that is used in the prevention of unwanted pregnancies from unwanted sexual intercourses. It is also used in the treatment of various menstrual problems such as irregular periods, painful or heavy menstrual bleeding during periods, premenstrual symptoms or PMS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts etc. Like other medications, it has side effects too of its own. It may cause acnes or rashes on the face as its side effects. It may cause symptoms of allergic reactions such as rashes, itching, swelling of eyes, face, lips, tongue, throat, hands or feet, wheezing, breathing difficulties, dizziness, hypotension, rapid heartbeat etc. If any of these allergic reactions appear, then you should consult your doctor first for medical help.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Zubayer Alam, General And Family Physician,
