Ive been taking bcp for my fibroids. I also have bp problems that i am taking meds for. Friday was the first day of my off week on bcp and friday i started getting fluttering in my chest. never thought anything about it and checked today. its beed over 145 and around 90+. Im grateful i get symptoms before it gets to high. Can the change in hormones from the pill cause and increase in bp. I only notice this when i dont take the pill on my off week. I will call the dr tomorrow but with the fibroids i have to be on the pill. my last pap the dr said my uterus was the size of a 4 mth pregnancy. Which that eliminates alot of procedures i can have. Just curious if you have any answer about the pill. i have looked online and it says it can cause higher bp.
