Did You Have Diabetes in Pregnancy? Are You on the MiniPill?

Mostly we know that the doses of estrogen and progesterone in oral contraception are so low compared to pregnancy we tend to ignore their possible effect on diabetes and blood sugar. Most women who end pregnancy having not been a diabetic in the past are no longer diabetic if they deliver.

Losing weight, exercising, continuing the right diet are all important ways to control that. But newest research, particularly done in Latina Woman shows that mini pill use is over 3 times as likely for them to become diabetic post pregnancy. AT WHP we test most women at the 6 week check up and then again yearly, and you may want to ask your own doc what they want to do with respect to diabetes.
