Mircette Birth Control Pills

Women who are thinking about taking an oral contraceptive (also called birth control pills) may be interested in Mircette® (desogestrel/ethinyl estradiol). One pill is taken each day, preferably at the same time each day. If you are having trouble remembering to take Mircette correctly, you may need to consider another birth control option. Missing doses increases your risk of pregnancy.
 
Most women have no problems with Mircette, but side effects are possible. Common adverse reactions to birth control pills include breast tenderness, headache, and nausea. However, if you experience anything that "just does not seem right," contact your healthcare provider.
