Welcome to ehealthforum.
Few weight loss and diet pills can affect the efficacy of the birth control pills and put you at risk for pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. Discuss with your gynecologist about safety of use of the pills along with your weight loss medication.
Take care.
