Gildagia Side Effects

Common Side Effects

Gildagia is a generic version of Ovcon 35, a relatively old birth control pill that was approved in 1976. As is common with older birth control pills, only vague information is available about possible side effects. In fact, the possible side effects listed in the prescribing information of Gildagia are actually the side effects of all birth control pills in general.
Some of the common reactions to birth control pills include but are not limited to:
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Bloating
  • Changes in your eyes that make it more difficult to wear contact lenses
  • Breast tenderness or other breast changes (such as swelling)
  • Headaches (although birth control pills can improve headaches in some women)
  • Breakthrough bleeding and spotting between periods
  • Changes in sex drive (typically a decrease).

Final Thoughts

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