Undesirable effects Desogestrel Eg
The most frequently reported adverse reaction in clinical trials is the irregularity of bleeding. Up to 50% of women using desogestrel reported irregular bleeding. As desogestrel causes ovulation inhibition close to 100%, unlike other progestin-only pills, irregular bleeding is more common than with these other pills. In 20% to 30% of women, bleeding may occur more frequently, whereas in 20% of women bleeding may be less frequent or absent altogether. Vaginal bleeding may also be longer. After a few months of treatment, bleeding tends to be less frequent. Information, tips and a bleeding tracker can help women better accept them.
The other most commonly reported adverse reactions (> 2.5% frequency) in clinical trials with desogestrel are: acne, mood changes, mastodynia, nausea, and weight gain. The undesirable effects listed in the table below were considered by the investigators to be causally certain, probable or possible with the treatment. Within each frequency group, adverse effects are presented in order of decreasing severity.
