A 24-year-old member asked:

Is there a birth control pill that doesn't worsen effects of raynaud's syndrome?

Maybe: Information on what happens to raynaud's patients when they use birth control pills is hard to find. More research needs to be done. The general recommendation is to avoid birth control pills because the hormones (estrogen) can affect blood circulation and blood vessels. However, a woman can talk with her ob-gyn doctor if she wishes to use birth control pills. Progesterone-only pills may be ok.

No evidence: There's no real evidence that bc pills worse raynauds disease, but if it'sraynaud's syndrome associated with lupus, talk with your doctor (if you have antiphospholipid antibodies).

May not have any: Depends on the person, some people don't notice anything, some people may get pain at ovulation, may have heavier or more cramps on their periods, may have longer periods, may get some pms symptoms, may get pregnant, if you are having problems you should see your gyn for an exam and work up.
