The hormones in birth control do cause certian symptoms, the breast tenderness, bloating, and gassy movements are associated with the PILL.. UNFORTUNATELY they are also asociated with pregnancy and PMS, so they can cause some paranoia.

Birth control WILL make your periods lighter, so that is not unusual. IF YOU ARE taking your pill everyday and not missing days, then you are protected 99%... That is really great odds!

IF you want to make your self feel less worried, you can take an EARLY pregnancy test..

They are effective about 4 days BEFORE a missed period... IT is rare to become pregant using the pill CORRECTLY, but it has happened.
