Are you talking about hormonal birth control? If so, which kind of hormonal birth control are you using?

Nausea is a fairly common side effect of the pill, for example. So if you have just started taking the pill, the nausea you are experiencing may well be due to that. If you're taking it on an empty stomach, you might try and see if taking it with food makes you feel any better. Most side effects of starting hormonal bc will subside after the first 2-3 months, so if the nausea is not too bad, you might try and stick it out to see if it goes away. If it's really very bad, you'll want to get in touch with the prescribing doctor to see about trying you on a different brand, or a different type of birth control.
