Mini-pill causing headaches?

I started the mini pill a couple of days ago and I've been getting headaches since. I don't usually get headaches and starting the pill is the only thing I can think of that would be causing them. Has anyone else experienced this? Did they go away after a while?? Thanks :)

  • Headaches are a side effect of the pill.

  • Yeah the birth control I was on I felt like I had a constant nagging headache. Nothing painful, it was just there. It's a side effect though. Unfortunately.

  • Did the headaches eventually go away for good?? that's exactly howI would explain my headache - a nagging headache.

  • They'll go away after your body adjusts to the different level of hormones. It should take about a week or so.
