Side Effects of Mala D

Save

Mala D is an oral contraceptive pill that contains two female hormones: estrogen and progesterone. Mala D is taken to delay the menstrual period or make the period occur less frequently. It's sometimes taken to prevent the arrival of the menstrual cycle at a specific time. This technique is called menstrual manipulation.

How The Pill Works

  • Mala D simulates the natural cycle; ovulation (the release of the egg from the ovary) does not occur due to suppression of the hormone that causes ovulation. Mala D pills are taken starting from the sixth day of menstruation for a period of 21 days. On day 21, a placebo is taken. This mimics progesterone withdrawal and brings on the menstrual cycle; after seven days, Mala D is started again.

Side Effects

  • Some of the side effects of Mala D are similar to those exhibited by most oral hormonal contraceptives. They include acne, breast tenderness, bloating, nausea and mood changes. There may be headache, leg cramps and changes in weight. In some cases, there may be pigmentation on the face. Contact your doctor for advice about these symptoms.

Seek immediate medical attention if you have signs of bloating, severe abdominal pain or severe chest pain and shortness of breath.
