Question: marvelon

 sop22 - Tue Oct 30, 2007 2:58 pm

Hello. ive been on marvelon (the pill) for a bit more than 3 years now and the last three months my BP has gone up, consistantly in the pre hypertension range, ive read that it can be to do with marvelon, is this true? i have no other reason to have this and its all i can think that is causing it.
thanks :)

User avatar Yes, high blood pressure can be a side effect in people who are prone to this condition. There is a genetic element that might make you more apt to get it than someone else might be. So, while it may not be the cause, it could aggravate things. You should talk to your care provider about this and it may be that you will need to switch to an alternate birth control method.

Best wishes.
