Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you are experiencing elevated blood pressure after stopping your birth control medication. The medication you were taking, Beyaz, does have side effects while taking it. There is no indication that your blood pressure will rise after stopping this medicine. Your blood pressure elevation can be due to many reasons and a direct cause of essential hypertension has not been found. We know that salt in your diet can elevate blood pressure. Lack of exercise and weight gain can also cause an elevation in blood pressure. Having said that, the withdrawal of estradiol (one of the active ingredients in the pill) can cause some changes in mood (making one a little anxious) which can elevate your blood pressure. If it is withdrawal of estrogen, your body will adjust over time and your pressure should return to its normal level. If however, it is essential hypertension, then salt elimination, exercise and weight loss will also help keeping your pressure down.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
Good question. When you say a "spike," what is your blood pressure now compared to 2 months ago.
There is no way for me to know if this doctor is online. The only thing I can do is to opt out and put your question back in the que for other experts to answer. Is that what you want me to do?
I would like to offer you a natural solution for both your anxiety and blood pressure which you can buy at most pharmacies or GNC stores. In addition to your LoPressor, take a Magnesium supplement by Nature Made or any other brand. Dose at 250 mg to 500mg daily. Monitor your blood pressure and confer with your doctor so that your pressure doesn't drop too low. You should start to feel better in about 2-4 weeks.
