Hi,

Yes, it can increase blood sugar levels. Novelon is a combined oral contraceptive pill which contains estrogen and progesterone.

The estrogen in the pills can raise blood sugar levels by increasing resistance to insulin.

You may need dose adjustment of your anti-diabetic medicines to control your blood sugar.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
