Birth control causing me pain and sickness...please help!
I've been on birth control for two weeks, and for about the past week, I've been waking up nautious. I read in the directions included with the pills that taking my daily pill before going to bed can help with the nausea that most women experience during their first month, but the nausea simply seems to hold off until the morning. It's not an intense feeling of sickness, but it's still there.
Now, though, a week later, the nausea has worsened. My first thought was possibly morning sickness, because I had a couple of physical encounters about 5 weeks ago, but then I also remembered that I went to Family Planning and took a pregnancy test that yielded a negative (well I took it during my period O.o and YES it was my period and not implantation bleeding - I'm 100% sure).
Also, I've noticed that I'm experiencing bad stomach pains. These just started yesterday. It's not a nautious feeling, but just like I have a bad stomach ache. And this pain combined with nausea is keeping me from eating as much as I used to. I feel hunger pains through the nausea and it drives me crazy because I'm hungry, but I get sick at the sight of food too.
I seemed to be eating more after a couple days of using the pill, which scared me thinking I was pregnant, but I was not having any weird food cravings (well, I always crave sweets - what woman doesn't?). And in the handout given to me with the pills, it said some women gain weight while on the pill, which I'm assuming is from an increase in appetite. Okay, I dig that.
I haven't thrown up yet, although the past 2 nights I have come close. When I'm going to throw up I of course feel sick to my stomach and then I start shaking uncontrollably. I've done that these past nights, but I calmed down and kept my stomach contents inside.
According to the directions given to me, if I experience abdominal pain, I'm to contact my clinician, but the Family Planning clinic is only open three days a week and not on weekends. I tried the hospital, but they all told me they can't diagnose anything over the phone. Note that my mom doesn't know I'm using birth control, so I can't really give her any specifics.
Which brings me to my first question: If I was to go to a physician and be evaluated, and I told them I am on birth control, would they tell my mom?
But anyway, my main problems are stomach pain and morning nausea. Has anyone elsse experienced this? Is it normal?
I don't know what to do about this. Should I stick to my schedule and take today's pill, or should I stop taking them and then contact Family Planning tomorrow?
I really don't know how to handle this - I don't think I even really need birth control because I'm not sexually active, but it was more or less to give me peace of mind if my boyfriend and I did get a little physical (oral sex, etc.). I'm just paranoid is all and I wanted to be protected.
Any advice or help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
