Question by Nervosa: Is there a birth control pill I can take safely with high blood pressure?
So I have moderately high blood pressure. One of my doctors said the only safe contraceptives for me are condoms, but my mom thinks we should get a second opinion. So does anyone know of a safe birth control pill I can take?
Thanks in advance:)
Answer by pearlmar
Birth control pills or oral contraceptives are made from synthetically produced estrogen and progesterone. Some contraceptive pills contain progesterone only. Pills with both estrogen and progesterone combined are likely to cause an increase in the blood pressure – but only in some women. Other women take contraceptive pills for years and have no problems with them.
So I suggest you seek a second opinion.
