Wymzya Fe Side Effects

Headaches, nausea, and breast tenderness are some of the common side effects of birth control pills, including Wymzya Fe. In many cases, reactions either don't require treatment or are easily treated. However, you should seek immediate medical attention if you develop more serious problems with Wymzya Fe, such as sharp chest pain, migraines, or swelling in the legs or feet.

 

An Introduction to Side Effects of Wymzya Fe

As with any medicine, Wymzya™ Fe (norethindrone/ethinyl estradiol) can cause side effects. However, not all women who use the contraceptive will experience problems. 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. Often, some of the bothersome side effects of Wymzya Fe improve (or even go away completely) within the first few cycles of use.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible Wymzya Fe side effects. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
