In brief: Unlikely

Lo-ovral is a low dose birth control pill that has been around for a long time.
It is a progestin dominant pill and like all pills in that category can be associated with some fluid retention, increased appetite and hair changes and lowers the good cholesterol. For the most part, it has been a well tolerated birth control pill choice.
