White Coat Hypertension and the Pill! watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    When I went to get my combined pill renewed in December I was told I needed a BP test because it was at the uni doctors and I hadn't been before. It showed up that I had high BP - 150/120 (ish) so I was unable to be given my regular pill and was instead given cerazette.

    I stayed on cerazette for the 3 months and I had bleeding everyday. I went to the doctors and she said that that's not right and I should change the pill. She said she needed to check my BP and yet again, high BP. She said it's unlikely for someone of my age, weight and lifestyle to have high BP and that I might have white coat hypertension or white coat syndrome.

    I've been put on another progesterone only pill and whilst being on it less than a week after my last period, I'm bleeding again.

    Is there a way to get my old combined pill and to prove I don't have high BP?
