No: Before starting a diuretic, you need to be evaluated for other causes: kidney or liver dysfunction, low thyroid, blood clots in the legs (which is a risk for estrogens). Before starting a diuretic for any reason, you need your potassium checked.

I have extra water retention in my fingers and feet I've had blood tests done and I'm healthy should I use fluid pills to get rid of the selling?

I have extra water retention in my fingers and feet I've had blood tests done and I'm healthy should I use fluid pills to get rid of the selling?

NO: Never a good idea to use a systemic drug for a local problem. You will dehydrate all your vital tissues and organs. You can damage your kidneys and cause abnormally now blood pressure. Fluid retention is a normal part of the menstrual cycle and resolves on its own. If you are overweight, that's another possible cause and should not be diuresed.

I need a bc pill that causes less water retention, is low androgenic and is also a monophasic. Is ortho cept a good choice for me? On orthocyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate).

I need a bc pill that causes less water retention, is low androgenic and is also a monophasic. Is ortho cept a good choice for me? On orthocyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate).

Likely fine: As long as you are not a smoker, just about any pill should be ok for you. But, you have to simply try the new one. Unfortunately there is no way to predict which pill you will do better with than others. Ask your obgyn for samples (orthocept (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) and cyclen aren't sampled to our offices anymore) good luck.
