Contraceptive pill

A few questions about the contraceptive pill.
I have aura migraines can I still take it or is there an alternative? When you stop taking it does your cycle go back to normal? Are there any disadvantages of it? & how effective is it if I also use a condom? Really do not want to get pregnant.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
There are actually many other forms of birth control besides the pill and condoms.
Here is a list of a some options:
--the vaginal ring
--the depo shot
--the implant
--the patch
--the IUD
--cervical cap
The link below describes all birth control methods in detail.

In general condoms will effectively prevent pregnancy as long as they do not come off, break or leak.
The link below describes how to prevent condom failure:

Before making a decision on the right birth control method for you, it is important to speak with a gynecologist. So, I highly suggest that be your next step.
