A woman is taking oral contraceptives. The nurse teaches the client to report which of the following danger signs?
1. Breakthrough bleeding.
2. Severe calf pain.
3. Mild headache.
4. Weight gain of 3 lb.
Women who take oral contraceptives are at increased risk for thromboembolic conditions. Severe calf pain needs to be investigated as a potential sign of deep vein thrombosis. Breakthrough bleeding, mild headache, or weight gain may be common benign side effects that accompany oral contraceptive use. Clients may be monitored for these side effects without a change in treatment.
