Some people might think that birth control is just a way to stop you from getting pregnant, as though it's a shield surrounding your uterus. However, birth control is a pill, just like other prescriptions, and it does more than that. Some people also take birth control to help with endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, or to help regulate their periods. Regardless of your reasoning, going on birth control is a big decision, and it’s important to know the pros of the pill as well as the weird things happen when you start birth control.
Some are the more unusual side effects are common and treatable, and others may require you to change your prescription or go off birth control completely. This is because everyone's body is different and we all react to oral contraceptives in different ways. Sometimes the pill isn't right for you and, depending on the severity, the cons of the pill can outweigh the pros of taking birth control. It’s important to pay attention to the way your body reacts when you start taking the pill. If you're experiencing and of the following weird side effects (or anything out of the ordinary for that matter), let your doctor know. They'll work with you to get the prescription that's right for you.
