Some women will have mild, temporary side effects, such as menstrual changes, nausea, lower stomach (abdominal) pain, tiredness, headache, dizziness, breast pain and vomiting. These are similar to the side effects that some women have when taking regular birth control pills. Some women taking Levonorgestrel tablets, 0.75 mg will have menstrual changes such as spotting or bleeding before their next period. Some women may have a heavier or lighter next period, or a period that is early or late. If your period is more than a week late, you should have a pregnancy test, because you may be pregnant. In very rare cases, ectopic pregnancy may occur. A doctor should be consulted immediately if abdominal pain occurs 3 to 5 weeks after taking Levonorgestrel tablets, 0.75mg, as this may be a sign of ectopic pregnancy.
