Answer by Doc Julio
Most Common Adverse Events: (%)
Abdominal Pain 17.6
Heavier Menstrual Bleeding 13.8
Lighter Menstrual Bleeding 12.5
Breast Tenderness 10.7
Other complaints 9.7
The immediate side effects (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, abdominal pain) are likely to last a day or two. The hormonal side effects (because it can throw out your cycle – sore breasts, bleeding) might last 4-6 weeks.
