Good Day
It is possible that the pills can have this effect of fatigue, nausea, headache, abdominal pain as well. You need to consume enough water and eat healthy. Your BMI indicates less than normal value. You are underweight. Start be eating high calorie and protein food like banana, orange, jackfruit, chikoos, eggs, milk, rice, pulses, cereal, chicken and lean meat. This will help you feel better. Consult a Gynaecologist in this regard if the symptoms are bothering because there are other options like 3 monthly Depot injections, Mirena IUCD etc.

Hi,all your symptoms like nausea,headach,irritability&tirdness could be due to the pills that you take as contraception because these pills contain hormones which act in your body to prevent ovulation & therefor prevent pregnancy ,so you can visit your gp to chang the pills to another type of pill or to another kind of contraception.thank you for your question.

I take the microgynon pill and have been for the past 2 years. I have recently become nauseous in my first week after the withdrawal bleed, this is odd for me. I ve had unprotected sex on the last day of my Period. I started my pack half a day late, could I be pregnant? I have been feeling nauseous for 3 days now

Hi, I m 22 and have been on the contraceptive pill Microgynon 30 for 4 years. I recently started taking ceterizine tablets twice a day because of a severe reaction to mosquito bites. Will this affect the effectiveness of the contraceptive pill? Also, is there anything else I can take to reduce the itching/swelling of the mosquito bites?

Currently, I am using the IUD Mirena device, and it has been 6 years since I ve replaced it. I have not had any bleeding or abnormal bleeding until yesterday, and I am very concerned. I am scheduled to have it replaced in a month, but until then I am a little concerned because of the bleeding, since I ve not had any bleeding at all. Is this normal? I am having lower abdominal pain, but it is not severe.
