For the past couple days, I haven't really been able to eat. I mean, I'm hungry but just looking at food makes me feel kind of sick. Considering all the other side effects I've had from birth control, I'm attributing my eating problem to taking the Pill. Has anyone else experienced this????

My appetite has been lessened since I was on the pill, but I haven't felt sick just looking at food. Perhaps you should talk to your doctor about switching to a different pill that gives you less severe side effects? Not being able to eat can't be healthy.

I'm doing a lot better now. And I'm only on Ortho Tri-cyclen low because I'm so tiny (I only weigh like 80ish pounds). I don't think there's anything lower they can put me on.
