I am taking lo loestrin since past one year. And I was really happy with it till now. I had a high blood pressure episode that lasted 4-5 days. I was a low bp person usually in range 110/70 . now the bp is lower but stuck at 135/85 range. Even though it is borderline normal. I am thinking did my bcp cause my bp to go higher in past one year ? And if I cobtinue to take will it go even more higher ? I don't want to go on bp medication and would like to avoid bcp if it is a factor.
Thanks

Hello, Rach! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having.

Yes, oral contraceptives that contain estrogens can cause elevated blood pressure, in some women that take them. It may be best to speak to your doctor about stopping it for awhile, to see if it returns to normal levels.

Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, breakthrough bleeding, irritability, weight gain and PMS-like symptoms.

Is there anything else I can help with?
