Question by  hawesy (10)

I have vertigo which was caused by my pill. Will it ever stop completely?

Basically I wanted to ask if I will ever have a normal life again as I have had severe attacks twice. I would also like to have children but I need to know I'm safe. Me and my partner both want kids.

The vertigo will probably go away once the pill is out of your system. Ask your doctor what to expect. Vertigo symptoms are usually short lived if you have no other health condition.

I'm not sure what pill caused your vertigo; however, vertigo is often self-limited (meaning that it goes away on its own). You should see a doctor to make sure there's no other reason you've been having vertigo. As long as they don't find any underlying problems, there shouldn't be a problem with having children.

WOW, this is amazing! I only took Loestrin 24 FE for 8 days and have SEVERE dizziness that makes my head so light it feels I'm going to pass out! i told my GYN and she insists this isn't caused by this pill but I know it was!

If you have vertigo caused by a birthcontrol pill you need to stop it immediately. If you continue a birthcontrol program you need to find one that is more gentle but still effective. The pill can effect each person differently depending on age and other factors, but I recommend stopping.

Yes I am sure you will have a normal life again.It takes a while for the pill to get out of your system. So stay positive and get busy with starting your family.
