Want all women on birth control to know

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! While I am in no way giving medical advice I am far from a doctor I have found that the birth control pill I was on which was YAZ FLEX also has sister drug called YASMIN might have caused my POTS! I have stopped this pill for nearly two weeks and my constant dizziness is slowly subsiding and is no longer now constant! I researched my pill and there are a lot of suggestions that it has caused tachycardia in a lot of patients after prolonged use and I was on this for 6 years! My tachycardia is still there but no where near as bad as what it has been to the point where I have been able to start back at work this week and drive my kids to their first week back at school! I have started on another birth control pill but with different hormones in it so here's hoping ? just wanted to pass on my experience to everyone xo

Thanks for sharing your experience.  Great that you are feeling better!

I definitely have felt worse on birth control pills, in general--more tachycardia etc.  Some POTS patients seem to feel better on them.

Hi,

Yes my pots started after having a mirena coil. The coil was removed after 3 days but I ended up not being able to walk and not understanding why my legs wobbled.  For 5 years i had posts symptoms on and off and nobody understood until it hit me full on. I still believe the coil started my POTS. Having said that i also took bio-identical HRT and i found this helpful.

Hi Kat,

I don't know about causing it, but hands down every BCP I've ever used in the past - until now - has made my orthostatic episodes and other neurologic symptoms worse.  I'm currently on LoLoestrin.  It's the only one that hasn't.
