Doctor:These symptoms are usually noted in the initial few days and disappear spontaneously.
Doctor:However most pills used will cause similar symptoms.
Doctor:In this circumstance, the options available to you are:
Doctor:1. If the symptoms are not very troubling, you can try continuing it for a day or two. If symptoms improve then you can continue with the same schedule.
User:any food intake can supress these symptoms?
Doctor:2. If symptoms are very troubling, you can report back to your doctor. She can consider either stopping pills and waiting for periods to start or prescribing other pills like plain levonorgestrel (primolut N)
Doctor:3. D and C will be the final option if periods do not return despite waiting or with pills.
Doctor:Food has almost no role with your symptoms; however I recommend you to take a simple, less spicy and less oily food.
