Common Reactions to Heather

Common Side Effects

Norethindrone birth control pills (like Heather) have been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the following side effects were commonly reported:
 
  • Menstrual changes
  • Breast tenderness
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness.
     
The most common type of menstrual change is frequent, irregular bleeding; prolonged or absent bleeding is less likely.
 

Final Thoughts

It is possible that you may experience some or none of the Heather side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell whether any particular side effect (such as nausea) is caused by Heather or other factors.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking this oral contraceptive or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to Heather, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
