The most common side effects of Estroven are stomach upset, nausea and mild diarrhea, according to Drugs.com. Rare side effects of Estroven include severe allergic reactions, numbing or tingling of the skin, or a feeling of swelling of the entire body.

Although Estroven contains natural ingredients, including several essential vitamins and nutrients, it can still cause side effects. People can avoid the minor stomach upset sometimes associated with Estroven by taking the supplement with food, states Drugs.com.

Other less severe yet rare side effects of Estroven include head pain and dizziness, according to WebMD. Severe allergic reactions can cause hives; rash; itching; swelling of the mouth, face, lips or tongue; difficulty breathing caused by bronchospasm; or tightness in the chest, says Drugs.com. Drugs.com urges women to seek medical attention if they experience these rare yet severe side effects when taking Estroven.

Estroven is a line of vitamins/dietary supplements designed to help relieve the symptoms of peri-menopause, menopause and post-menopause. As of November 2014, the Estroven website lists seven products in the Estroven line. These products help address the psychological and physical symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance, including hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, mood and memory issues, weight management issues, occasional sleeplessness, and fatigue.
