What are the side effects of Endometrin?

You may not experience any side effects from using Endometrin (progesterone). However, the most common side effects include headache, nausea, vomiting, constipation, bloating, cramping, stomach pain, and fluid retention. It is common to feel tired, drowsy, or irritable after taking Endometrin. You may also experience breast tenderness or vaginal burning. If any of these side effects become severe, you should speak to your doctor. Some side effects are more serious and require immediate attention. People suffering from depression need to be extra cautious when taking Endometrin. Speak to your doctor if you experience a drastic change in your mood or behavior. Pain, tenderness, or swelling in your calf or leg should not be ignored. Other serious side effects include unusual vaginal discharge, itching, or bleeding; loss of eyesight; weakness in arms or legs; yellowing of skin or eyes; chest pain; fainting; coughing up blood; experiencing severe headache, vomiting, or dizziness; pain in groin; difficulty speaking, and symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, including hives, itchy rash, breathing difficulties, and swelling in the face, mouth, or throat. You should stop taking Endometrin and contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of these serious side effects.
