This drug works by stopping ovulation, altering the cervical mucus, and changing the lining of the uterus. Possible side effects or negative patient outcomes include:
- High Blood Potassium
- Blood Clots
- Heart Attack
- High Blood Pressure
NOTE: The risk of serious Ocella-related side effects are increased dramatically when paired with cigarette smoking.
