Having short of breath. Taking birth control pills. Suggest

I am short of breath . I have no fever. I have no pain. I try to fake yawn so I feel better, (like the satisfaction of a deep breath), but that does not seem to help. * I am only 20 years old, and am other wise in good health.
I started to take birth control about 6 weeks ago, and for the last week
I have felt this way.

Thanks for posting your question here, I will try to answer it to the best of my abilities.

Shortness of breath isnt a side effect we usually associate with contraceptive pills, as such I am sure the cause is something else.
I recommend you see a doctor as soon as possibe, after an xray of your lungs and listening to your breathing sounds using a stethoscope we may be able to diagnose the problem and then treat it accordingly.

I hope this answered your question.
