  • Some do, some don't. It all depends on you. If you want some peace of mind get a test. =) But, it's probably just your birth control.

  • There should be an insert with your BC pills that tells what some possible side effects can be. Those that you listed are actually fairly common but keep an eye on it and if they persist or become unbearable you need to see your healthcare provider again ASAP.

  • it does that to me, I learnt to take them at night so I start on Sunday night instead of the morning. Then I take them everynight then on. I sleep through the side effects.

  • I had pregnancy-esque symptoms for the first few months, including fatigue, digestive fun, and change in appetite. But it all leveled out within a few months =)

    If it's really bad, though, look into switching birth control. There are a ton of varieties to try.
