Side Effects of Balziva

Although there is not much information available about the specific side effects of Balziva, possible side effects of birth control pills in general can include things such as nausea, bloating, and breast tenderness. In most cases, the side effects of Balziva are typically minor and are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider. However, you should seek immediate medical care if you develop more serious side effects, such as chest pain or vision changes.

An Introduction to Side Effects of Balziva

As with any medicine, Balziva™ (norethindrone/ethinyl estradiol) can cause side effects. However, not every woman who uses it will experience side effects. In fact, most women tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider. Many of the common side effects of Balziva may improve within the first few cycles of use.
(Balziva is a generic version of Ovcon® 35. The information in this article also applies to Ovcon 35.)
