Ok, here's a little background info. I'm 18, have been on the BCP for 6 months, am vegetarian, am sexually active in a monogamous relationship, always use a condom (except once, but it won't happen again), am STI negative (got tested 2 months ago) and live at school. I get 9 hours + of sleep a night. The problem started about a month ago. I started feeling really tired in the morning. Then I started to get headaches a lot. Now I'm just tired and listless all the time, get these wicked headaches that won't go away, and whenever I eat, even if I barely eat anything and was really hungry before, I feel sick to my stomach and overly full. Could this be because of Alesse? I haven't had any problems previously. Or could it be something else?

Did you ever have any troubles with headaches before using BCPs?

If you did, it's not atypical for BCPs to make headache problems worse, especially migraines.
