As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Portia. However, not everyone who uses the contraceptive will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Common side effects of Portia include, but are not limited to:
- Nausea with or without vomiting
- Breakthrough bleeding or spotting (between periods)
- Breast swelling and tenderness
