Can the pill make you tired?

There are two types of contraceptive pill (progestogen-only pill – POP, and the combined oral contraceptive pill – COC), and they will cause different side effects in different people.

More common side effects include things like change in mood but some people may also feel more tired when they first start using the pill. If these side effects don’t go away after a few months, speak to your GP or sexual health clinic.

POP and COC have different hormone combinations so if the side effects from one are bothering you, it may be worth seeing whether you can try a different type of contraception.
