In brief: Gallstones

There is some evidence that OCPs/estrogen therapy can increase the risk of gallstones although some data suggests that increased risk may be transient and cannot be demonstrated after 10 years of use.

In brief: Yes

Birth control pills do not protect you from developing gallstones, nor do they cause gall stones
