Yup those serious side effects can occur but your doctor knows it and has prescribed them for right duration. Those are the long term side effects. If that tablet is consumed for years,like you use it for contraception.

The dosage prescribed to you is for a short term period with a small dose .This has a wide safety margin.so you can go ahead with the treatment.wish you all the best.
