Hello,

I am 53 years old and just recently had my annual OBGYN exam where the doctor refused to refill my BC prescription based on how high my BP was. The plan is to stop the pill and insert a Mirena IUD on January 31.

Has anyone else been in this situation? was wondering if anyone had an idea how soon after stopping the estrogen from the pill would my BP lower/normalize to what it really will be so I can have a truer reading and start the right BP med dose?

The duration of birth control isn't too terribly long - I would say a month is probably enough time (more than) to get an idea of what your norm looks like. Your doctor will probably put you on something now, and adjust accordingly as you come off the birth control. Good luck!

(By the way, if you get the Mirena, https://iud-divas.livejournal.com/ has been helpful to me -- if you didn't already know about it!)

thank you. I had heard of it, but didn't realize it was still active.
