Hi, thank you for your questions.

For your information, there is no contraindication of the birth control pill with the COVID-19 vaccine. Women who taking birth control are advised to take the jab.
Things to take note, if you have any history of immediate onset anaphylaxis to multiple classes of drugs or unexplained anaphylaxis, it is better that you get further confirmation from a doctor or specialist , as well as report to the medical officer at your Vaccination Center, to prevent any serious complications .
Risk of blood clot from COVID-19 vaccination is a rare event, and its benefits still multiple times outweighs the risk. Based on your question, generally, symptoms of blood clot may include throbbing or cramping pain, redness and warmth in a leg or arm, and sudden breathlessness.
