Our expert says:
Most birth control pills can increase blood pressure, including Triphasil — especially for women who are over 35, women who are overweight and women who smoke. Have your blood pressure checked regularly.
You may need to try a different type of birth control pill or another form of birth control. Alternatives may be the Mirena IUD, using condoms or the Depo Provera injection.
