In brief: Depends on the pill

It depends on the birth control pill.
Some pills are associated with electrolyte abnormalities such as potassium and Prednisone can also exaccerbate this as well. You may also have more fluid retention and could have elevated blood pressure. Talk with your prescribing physician to see in more detail.
