I haven’t taken any birth control pills in 5 days

Patient: I haven’t taken any birth control pills in 5 days and now I feel sick why?

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Sick feeling can occur due to many causes like general infe ctions, low hemoglobin levels, blood sugar levels changes, electrolyte disturbances etc.If you used the pills before five days, withdrawal of pills can also lead sick feeling sometimes.So, if sick feeling persists, it is better to consult your doctor and get evaluated.Take care.
