When used as directed, My Way is safe for women. Common side effects associated with the use of My Way include 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 My Way will also have menstrual changes such as spotting or bleeding before their next period, a heavier or lighter period, or an earlier or later period. If your period is more than one week late, you may be pregnant and should get a pregnancy test. My Way does not protect against AIDS virus (HIV) or other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
