Diabetes and Birth Control

Fluctuating glucose levels can adversely affect a woman and her unborn child. Thus, it is important for women with diabetes to strictly control conception so that they do not have unplanned pregnancies. While many diabetic women can use oral contraception with no problems, some can be harmed by the side effects of the birth control pill.

Some oral contraceptives are more dangerous than others, whether or not a woman has diabetes. YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella are all birth control pills that have been linked with serious problems such as blood clots and stroke. If you have suffered health complications due to taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, contact a tenacious YAZ side effects attorney from Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.

How Oral Contraception Affects Your Body

Preliminary research has shown that the two hormones in oral contraception can affect your body’s blood sugar, or glucose, levels. Estrogen can increase your blood sugar levels while simultaneously suppressing your insulin production. Progestin, the other hormone, can increase the levels of insulin in your body. For the most part, this amount is not enough to negatively affect most women.

Risks for Women with Diabetes

For most women with diabetes, low-dose oral contraception is safe. However, women who have had diabetes for many years or who have serious problems regulating glucose levels should consider a different type of contraception. This is because severe or long-term diabetes can damage your vascular system, a component already at risk when taking birth control pills. Damaged blood vessels can be more likely to suffer from recognized oral contraception side effects such as blood clots.
