losing weight quickly, back up method?

Hi!

I've been on the Atkins diet for about a month and a half now and have been blessed with being able to drop about 20 pounds so far.
While this is very exciting it also makes me nervous that the quick loss of weight might effect my birth control pills.
It's pretty nerve racking too because a lot of the effects this diet can have on you are something like early pregnany symptoms...
headaches, unexplained fatigue, nausea, consipation and gas... the list goes on. It also has been known to make TOM go crazy for a lot of women.

Anyway with all this going on I would like to use some kind of BC back up.

I was thinking about maybe spremicide since my b/f doesn't like to use condoms. Anyone have any other suggestions ??

Loosing a lot of weight quickly can affect your menstrual cycle, but it shouldn't affect the effectiveness of the birth control. A back-up method isn't necessary.
