Thanks for your question.

Hematemesis that is blood in vomit is not a side effect of microgynon.

One possible cause can be tear in mucosa at junction of stomach and food pipe if the vomiting was violent though it is more common in men above 60 years and in people who have food disorders or are alcoholic.

You should also look out for melena that is black stools as that can indicate bleeding in gastro intestinal tract.

If you vomit any blood again or if you get melena it would be wise to visit your doctor or urgent care.

Ok
This happened first time and only after I took the mycrogynon it started with nausea and then as I went to throw up I saw red stuff coming out
Expert:  Dr.Amita replied 6 months ago.

It may be due to a small tear in mucosa if retching was severe.Most such incidents would be self limiting and would be better without any treatment.

If it recurs or if you get melena, visit urgent care to get evaluated and treated.

Ok thanks . Does mycrogynon need to
Be taken with food ?
Expert:  Dr.Amita replied 6 months ago.

Not necessarily.You may take it with or without food.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Ok and do I need to take on first day of period ? I took it Sunday but I had finished my periods a week ago
Expert:  Dr.Amita replied 6 months ago.

For what purpose are you taking microgynon?

Is it to delay period or for contraception?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It's for contraception
Expert:  Dr.Amita replied 6 months ago.

You should have started on the first day of period that is the first day of bleeding.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Ok
So shall
I stop it and take it then ?
Expert:  Dr.Amita replied 5 months ago.

No, I did not mean that.

You should continue taking the pill and use another method of protection until you have finished one complete cycle of 28 days to be completely safe.
