hi, most women have no side effects when taking the oral contraceptive pill, but some women do experience irregular periods, nausea, headaches, or weight change. Each type of oral contraceptive pill can affect each woman differently.
Spotting between periods may occur while taking the first three weeks of hormone pills, but this is not serious. This usually occurs during the first two or three cycles. You should call your health care provider if the bleeding is heavier than a light flow or lasts more than a few days.
Some women have some nausea, but this usually goes away if the pill is taken with a meal or a snack at bedtime. Sometimes a pill with less estrogen is prescribed if the nausea doesn't go away.
Sometimes, women may experience headaches when they start taking oral contraceptive pills. Usually headaches occur because of stress or other reasons. If your health care provider thinks they are related to the pill, he/she may prescribe an oral contraceptive pill with a lower dose of estrogen o
the side effects of ocp's are dizziness, headache, lightheadedness, stomach upset, bloating, or nausea. severe depression, groin or calf pain, sudden severe headache, chest pain, shortness of breath, lumps in the breast, weakness or tingling in the arms or legs, yellowing of the eyes or skin. that is the list of adverse effects of ocp's
Acne and weight gain, are the most common once.
The Pill may have a positive effect on a woman's sexuality. The woman (who uses the Pill) nor her partner need take any special action before or during intercourse, it makes birth control "invisible" and sex spontaneous, more natural, or both.

Hi, I have just started back on the OCP after a 2.5 yr break. I used to use Levlen ED but have been given AVA 30ED. I started as directed on the first day of my period and have now been on it for 3weeks. I noticed that once my bleeding stopped I was still getting some spotting and brown/bloody coloured discharge and have now started bleeding again but haven t got to the placebo pills yet. I haven t been having sex either. I was just wondering if this is normal? I have never had a problem with the pill in the past.
I've been taking birth control since i was about 14 years old to help with my very heavy menstrual cycle however recently I've been wondering will having taken birth control since such a young age until now affect me later when I do decide to have children?
