Abstract

Hypertension induced by oral contraceptives, is still present in clinical practice. However use of newer drugs containing lower doses of estrogen and more selective progestins resulted in less frequent occurrence of this phenomenon. Higher risk of hypertension is related to long- -term use of oral contraceptives and risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. It is very important to assess the possibility of hypertension before starting oral contraceptives especially with combined drugs. Blood pressure should be controlled during hormonal therapy.
