Effect of contraceptive pills

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your question on HCM

I do understand your concern

“As” per your health history is concerned your problem is due to hormonal imbalance as you are approaching towards menopause ,so you can change your pill to combined pill which contains both [estrogen and progestin] may help to resolve your problem .

Hope that helps
