Diabetes and contraception

Can I take birth control while being type 1 diabetic? If so, what should I be aware of? Will it affect my blood sugar / is it dangerous to my health

Hi

You can take birth control as a type 1 diabetic. It shouldn't have any major effects on glucose control. In terms of the risk of taking birth control besides for any risk related diabetes, this you would need to talk over with your gynecologist
