Effects of new pill - Please advise

My last period started on the 18th June. My Gynae wanted me to change my pill as the other was not working for me. I changed from Yasmin to Femodene ED. I started this on the 18th June. Since then I have been suffering from headaches. Is this a side effect from the new pill??

Was I protected from that day, I had sex with my boyfriend.
Yesterday I started vomitting and feeling sick. I am still not feeling too well today. Could it have been just something I ate or is there a possibility that I could be pregnant??

It may be a side effect of the new pill. Give it some time and see if it improves. Nausea and vomiting could also be side effects of the pill. You should have used extra protection for the first 7 days on the new pill. It seems that your period is late, so pregnancy is a possibility.

The yasmin caused me to have alot of break through bleeding, it also increased my weight. My gynae said that the Yasmin pill was not strong enough for my body, that is why I was bleeding. I haven't had any break through bleeding since I started on the Femodene ED.
