Could my pills be leaving me susceptible to frequent conjunctivitis? If so, what is an alternative birth control method I could use?

If it says so in the information packet given with the pills then you should quit either the pills or the contact lenses. Frequent conjunctivitis is probably due to that intolerance. If you quit the pills you can try condoms because that is very efficient, almost like the pills. IUDs are also very efficient but it is not recommended for women who have never delivered.
