Can Lutera cause high blood pressure?

A Answers (1)

  • AStacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answered
    If you are taking the birth control pill Lutera (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel), you might notice an increase in blood pressure. Lutera combines a synthetic estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and progestin (levonorgestrel). High levels of progestin can cause blood pressure to rise.

    If you are at risk for hypertension, you should monitor your blood pressure closely while taking Lutera.
