Depends on the pt: Some commonly reported side effects of birth control pills are unscheduled bleeding, lighter/shorter periods, missed periods, nausea, upset stomach and headaches. Each individual patient may experience one or more of these or none at all. If you do experience something you can't tolerate, you can always try another formulation. You have many pills combos to choose from. Talk to your doctor.

None unless: ..None unless you had problems before you were on the pill. If you had heavy periods pre- pill, cramps, or irregular cycles, you may return to your old patterns. But this is unrelated to any 'pill' effect. Many simply forget how they felt after being accustomed to the pill's regular light cycles & then stopping that experience.If pill gave you nausea or headache stopping will end that quickly.
