Can i have heart palpitation due to contraceptive pill or iron pill ?

I would like to know what are the causes of heart papiltations and if they can be serious? for the past 3 days my heart has sometimes felt like it has skipped a beat, it feels like one or two beats are a bit slower than they should be and it gives me a funny feeling in my throat as well as shocking me a little and it also really scares me. i had the same problem about 6 months ago only for a couple of days but this has been tonight, last night and also quite frequently on saturday night. on saturday night i was drinking alcohol which i havent done for a while, i dont know if this would have made it worse? also i am slightly anaemic but take iron tablets, and also i take the contraceptive pill (but have taken it for about 1 and a half years) if either of those things might be causing it? sometimes i also get shortness of breath and i have experienced slight chest pains before but that stopped quite a long time ago and the doctor said at the time it may have been related to the pill, but said i could still take it later on. does anybody know what it might be please?

It can be loads of things, including too much coffee and tea, stress, and anxiety. Go and see a doctor and don't worry because worrying will only make it worse.
