Hello,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

These symptoms can be due to hormonal effects caused by the pill but the possibility of pregnancy should also be ruled out.

If you are apprehensive regarding the status of your girlfriend's pregnancy she can get it checked. Most home pregnancy tests that check urine beta-HCG are sensitive to 20-25 mIU/ml of HCG. The test can be positive anywhere from about 2-3 days prior to a missed menses to 4-5 days after, but usually it should be done 7-10 days past her missed period.

Otherwise she can get a serum HCG also done which is more specific than urine pregnancy test.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
