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.

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?
