Welcome to ehealthforum,
The hormonal content of the pill could also contribute to dizziness, bowel habit changes, nausea etc. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and discuss about getting changed to alternate birth control measure. You can also consider using non-hormonal forms for some time to see if it helps. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
