In brief: Same as other pills

Side effects are the same as other birth control pills.
It does not decrease fertility, but if you had a fertility problem, it may prevent you from realizing it until you went off of it. It should not be taken by women over 35 who smoke, a family history of blood clot, or those with high blood pressure.
