Light bleeding during periods. Taking lisinopril for high BP. Side effects of medication?

I have recently been put on 25 mg of lisinopril for my blood pressure . I was wondering if this could effect my monthly cycle. For the last 2 months I have not really had a cycle just extremely light or spotting. There is also no way I could be preg. So I was just curious if the meds could have some kindof effect on it?

Welcome to HCM
You are having High BP for which Lisinopril is very good drug, usually this doesnot cause cycle abnormalities .
A word of caution if you are in age group where pregnancy is possible definately this is not safe in pregnancy,so if you are planning pregnancy please see your Physician to change your blood pressure medicine,
There may be many other causes for cycle abnormality.
Kindly get yourself examined by Gynecologist and if required proper investigations to know cause.
Take care
Good Luck.
