period and nordette

Dear GynaeDoc

My sister studies medicine and told me about a pill Nordettr, I can use to make my period more bareable. I' m 22 years old and weigh 48 kg, and am 1.6 m. I get heavy pains every month and my period lasts up to 6 days. I also can' t wear tampons. My sister says that Nordette will make the pains go away, make it fewer days and thus not being able to swim during the summer for a week won' t be a problem anymore. I would just like to know whether using Nordette will have any side-effects? Will I gain weight or develope anobscene appetite or become nausious?
I kust want to stay healthy, but dreading my period every month and a 22 year old not being able to wear tampons kind seems obscene!
Many thanks!

Coomon side effects would be nausea and breast tenderness. Not all women get these and they often only last a few weeks.
