Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The birth control pills you take contain a combination of the synthetic hormones estrogen and progesterone. This hormone is actually the same as the natural hormone in your body which is in charge of regulating your reproductive function. The consumption of birth control pills can have the effect of modifying the balance of reproductive hormones in the body. This is to prevent the egg from being fertilized by a sperm cell.
One of the side effects of taking birth control pills is nausea. This nausea occurs due to increased stomach acid in sensitive people. If the nausea is mild, and you have taken birth control pills according to the doctor's instructions, then you can reduce this nausea by taking birth control pills with or after eating.
However, if the nausea feels very severe, you should immediately consult a doctor. With further evaluation, the doctor can determine whether it is true that your nausea is purely a side effect of birth control pills, or there are other possible complications, for example related to dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), viral or bacterial infections, migraines, bile duct disorders, side effects other drugs, and so on. If it is suspected that it is a side effect of birth control pills, your doctor may also recommend another method of contraception that is more suitable for you.
Meanwhile, to reduce nausea, you should compress the stomach that feels uncomfortable with warm water, eat regularly, limit foods that contain too much gas, limit caffeine, get plenty of rest, and stay away from excessive stress or anxiety.
Hope it helps ya..
