I have factor five liden and just got the essure birth control and now I'm bleeding heavy and having blood clots is this normal?

I have factor five liden and just got the essure birth control and now I'm bleeding heavy and having blood clots is this normal?

When was procedure?: Before Essure often patients are started on Depoprovera or another form of birth control. Since you have Factor 5 Leiden most likely your doctor avoided an Estrogen containing product. Progesterone only methods cause irregular bleeding temporarily. Essure is in the fallopian tubes so it does not directly cause menstrual bleeding. Other medicines used with it can. Usually it resolves on its own ...Read more

Being on birth control continuous for 9 m have caused cervix to close? I had no blood for 3 m/1 m bled/6 m no blood/then found out my cervix closed.

Cervix is not closed: Long term birth control may make your periods irregular, absent, or a combination. Lack of menses is a side effect of contraceptive pills, not because your cervix is closed for blood to flow. ...Read more

I have been taking birth control (microgestin fe 1.5/30) for a month, blood pressure went from 131/69 to 152/89 did birth control cause this?

I have been taking birth control (microgestin fe 1.5/30) for a month, blood pressure went from 131/69 to 152/89 did birth control cause this?

Likely, yes: BCP's can increase BP, especially in individuals who are overweight,, although less with the low estrogen pill. Other meds like ibuprofen and naprosyn (naproxen) are also culprits. I recommend serial BP's to confirm if this is consistent or a one time measurement, as pain, nervousness, etc. can all have an effect. ...Read more

I'm taking birth control at 16 to treat my dysmenorrhea, could this be a cause for my elevated blood pressure?

I'm taking birth control at 16 to treat my dysmenorrhea, could this be a cause for my elevated blood pressure?

Its possible: Birth Control pills are known to cause high blood-pressure in some women. If you didn't have high blood pressure before you started them, they may be the culprit. You need to see your doc and try an alternative method for a month to see if your blood pressure comes back down. Then you will know. Best wishes! ...Read more

Here are some ...: The best help to solve your concern over severe irregular period may come from seeing a gynecologist. Clinically, some "imbalance" in estrogen and testosterone is culprit, but personal specific detail needs analyzing detailed Hx of onset, degree, duration, etc. of the symptoms and their potentially related discomfort, conducting physicals, and ordering tests... so to define Dx for Rx/ care/ ... ...Read more

Outer hairs on left eyebrow are falling out. Clear thyroid blood testing (not sure if full panel), PCOS sufferer, just started Yaz birth control to treat PCOS. Should I get more thyroid tests? Could PCOS cause this? Will Yaz help grow my hair back?

Outer hairs on left eyebrow are falling out. Clear thyroid blood testing (not sure if full panel), PCOS sufferer, just started Yaz birth control to treat PCOS. Should I get more thyroid tests?  Could PCOS cause this? Will Yaz help grow my hair back?

Maybe, maybe not: Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) will block some of the androgen effects of the PCOS but may not grow the eyebrow hair again. Make sure that the thyroid testing included a TSH, T3, T4, and Free Thyroid Index.(FTI) to definitely rule out thyroid disorders as a cause. ...Read more
