In brief: Mild

This is the lowest dose estrogen containing birth control on the market.
Side effects include breast tenderness, mild weight gain (5#or less), irregular bleeding, dizziness, change in appetite, headache & bloating. Severe side effects include blood clots, stroke, pain, heart problems etc. As with most birth control estrogens, these are possible but rare.
