Contraceptive Side-effects

Side effects of contraception are common. They can be annoying and often debilitating. There are many options to ameliorate symptoms and you should see your GP or a specialist.

Possible causes

Common causes are medications containing oral hormones (estrogen, progestogen) such as contraceptive agents and other oral hormonal therapies.

Ectropion, endometriosis, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) can also be associated with inter-menstrual bleeding.

Persistent inter-menstrual bleeding may be caused by genital tract infections, polyps within the uterus or cervix, and rarely cancer of the cervix.
