In brief: Normal ish

Although a call or examination with ob/gyn is possible.
It is common for bc to have these effects especially during the first three or so months. Switching also may resolve the problem may not. The most risk is the displeasure and the cost of pregnancy tests since your natural way of knowing if you might be pregnant is no longer viable.
