Hey. I am using oralcon contraceptive pills for more than two months now. I am on my 5th pill for the 3rd month. I started using oralcon after I had a miscarraige in November 2016. Ever since I started loosing a lot of weight and I do not eat as I usually did. Is this a concern.? Should I change contraceptives.? Or will things change after a while.? This is a big concern for me since I am not even 50kg yet and cannot afford to loose any weight further. What am I to do.?

Hello Lilita,

I'm terribly sorry to hear about your miscarriage and sudden weight loss. Hopefully I can shed some light on the situation and get you on track.

According to the manufacturer here are a list of possible side effects.

weight changes
changes of appetite (increase or decrease)
vaginal inflammation including mycosis
allergic reactions
decreased ability to metabolize glucose
mood swings including depression
changes of the sex drive
visual disturbances
contact lens intolerance
abdominal pain
abdominal cramps
rash yellowish brown
skin spots
increased body and facial hair
hair loss
breast pain
breast tenderness
breast hypertrophy
breast discharge
painful menstrual bleeding
changes in the strength of menstrual bleeding
increased vaginal discharge
fluid retention in tissue
blood pressure increase

As you can see it does state that taking this medication can cause weight loss and loss of appetite. If you are concerned with these side effects please consult your doctor to see if you can find a different contraceptive that works better for you.

I hope this helps and best wishes.
