Menopause Home > Delestrogen Side Effects
Nausea, breast tenderness, and headaches are among the commonly reported side effects of Delestrogen and other estrogen medications. In most cases, side effects tend to be minor and are typically easy to treat. However, certain Delestrogen side effects are potentially serious and should be reported to a healthcare provider immediately, including chest pain, vision changes, or any signs of an allergic reaction.
An Introduction to Delestrogen Side EffectsAs with any medicine, Delestrogen® (estradiol valerate) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes Delestrogen will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Delestrogen. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Delestrogen side effects with you.)
