Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms could be attributed to the hormonal content of the pills. The exact cause can only be made out after thorough evaluation. Consider visiting your treating doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy and consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
