Caziant is an oral contraceptive that is designed to be taken every day to prevent pregnancy. It contains two different types of hormones, and is a triphasic birth control pill, which means that there are different amounts of hormones each week. The last week of pills contains no hormones. Most women have no problems with Caziant, but side effects can include spotting between periods and breast tenderness.

Are There Side Effects?

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Caziant. However, not everyone who uses the contraceptive will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Common side effects of Caziant include but are not limited to:
  • Headaches
  • Breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Breast tenderness.
