Welcome to ehealthforum

Terconazole side effects are burning in the vaginal region,swelling,hives,fever,cold like symptoms and rare ones as menstrual cramps,headache,spotting but if the bleeding is heavy then you must report it to your treating Doctor as it is not a usual side effect and requires evaluation.
It is difficult to comment without pelvic examination.
Take care!
