Question: Can the oral contraceptive pill help with ADH defficiency

 k.louise - Sat Aug 21, 2010 7:38 am

can taking the oral contrceptive pill help with an ADH hormone defficiency. Can the estrogen in the pill help to produce more of the ADH hormone (antidiuretic hormone) which helps with water reabsorption.

User avatar Hello,
I am not aware of birth control pills being used in this way and I don't see how it could help the problem so I would say no.

Best wishes.
