Question: Night sweats after coming off birth control pills

 Jennbo - Sat Oct 31, 2009 11:35 pm

Hi there!

I've recently stopped taking my birth control pills and ever since I've been experiencing night sweats. I'm just wondering if the two are related or if I should talk to my doctor about it.

Thanks for your help!

User avatar Hello,
Because of the levels of hormones you received with the birth control pills, it is entirely possible that the cessation is causing the night sweats. You can probably wait it out a few months and see if your body adjusts. Other causes besides hormones include infection such as TB so if it continues you should check it out.'

Best wishes.
