The following side effects may occur in women who take an emergency contraceptive, such as Lydia Postpil:
- Menstrual changes e.g. heavier or lighter bleeding
- Lower abdominal pain
- Breast tenderness
- Delay of menses (>7 days)
These symptoms may be treated symptomatically and usually resolve within a few days.
*Take note that these side effects are normal and nothing to worry about. However, the postpil is not meant for regular use. Lydia recommends you to go for a more regular method like the Daily Oral Contraceptive Pill.
