On birth control, have acid reflux. What can be done to get rid of it?

Hi, I have been taking birth control , Loestrin 24, for the past 3 months everyday without missing. On June 20th i had sex with my boyfriend with a condom. We then wanted to see what it would be like to not have a condom on. He was literally inside of me to a minute. He did not cum at all because we were drinking and he had a whiskey d***. We don t know if he precam but i was just curious what the chances are? I do not think I am pregnant but I am just scaring myself to the point where i do need to hear it from a professional of what my chances are. I think it is slim and i have nothing to worry about. i am having side effects such as nausea , change in appetite , breast tenderness, headache, nervousness , and dizziness which are all shown as side effects from my birth control that may occur. i heard that these are common during the first 3 months of taking birth control. I have taken 5 test and they have all been negative. My mother keeps saying im not pregnant. I stopped taking my birth control and all my symptoms went away except my nausea. It is really bothering me and I looked online and it sounds like acid reflux . It only comes really bad between 5 and 7:30 at night. What can I do to get rid of the acid reflux.

chances of pregnancy are low if you were indeed taking oral contraceptives already for a few months, and if eyaculation didn't take place. Remember no contraceptive is a 100% effective, but oral contraceptives are about 98-99% effective if taken correctly. Plus you had negative pregnancy tests already, your chances of being pregnant are very very slim. For acid reflux you can take Ranitidine (zantac) 150mg by mouth at bedtime, or Prilosec OTC once a day with an empty stomach. Avoid alcohol, chocolate, mints, smoking. Eat dinner 4 hours before going to bed at night. Lose weight.
