  • Most likely.

    Stop taking them and use an alternative like condoms..

  • Yes, in fact it's not uncommon. BC pills contain hormones in an attempt to trick your body in to thinking it's already pregnant... Any time you take hormones in to your body you are messing with the natural order in your system... Imbalances are normal...

    If you are experiencing symptoms such as hot flashes I would advise you stop taking them... Try BC that are hormone free...
