Thanks for the query.

Familon is a birth control pill which is also used in endometriosis.
It contains-desogestrel + ethinylestradiol. Side effects are spotting in between the cycle , nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weight gain.
Be sure to start taking your new packet on schedule even if you are still bleeding. You may need to use a backup method of birth control if you vomit or have diarrhea .
