The Cause Of Blood Pressure Continues To Rise After Removing Birth Control?
permission to ask, before I did not have a history of hypertension, after a year of using KB injections that 3 months my blood pressure rose, initially the pressure was 120/70, it rose to 127/70 I finally stopped KB, but now my blood pressure goes up again to 130/80 Now I’m consuming bear brand milk, what should I do, good or not? So what should I do? So far I have not taken blood pressure-lowering drugs … Thank you in advance 😊

Increased blood pressure can be caused by various things such as age, excessive salt consumption, family history, obesity, lack of exercise, or side effects of certain drugs such as injectable birth control.
Birth control itself is a method used to prevent pregnancy. Basically, KB can be hormonal or non-hormonal. Injecting contraception is a type of hormonal birth control that is injected every month or every three months (KB injections 1 instead and KB injections 3 months). Hormonal birth control can cause hormonal imbalances in the body that can affect blood pressure and blood vessels where blood pressure increases. When you stop using hormonal birth control, of course it does not immediately disappear the effects of these hormones because the body still needs time to balance the hormones in the body. Therefore complaints of increased blood pressure are certainly still present.
Regarding the question of consumption of the dairy products that you mentioned even though milk has a high potassium content that is good for the heart, high saturated fats are not good for the heart. So it is better for you to consult in advance with a nutrition specialist. Considering the Corona infection is spreading, it's a good idea to contact your nutrition specialist by telephone to minimize face-to-face contact.
For now things you can do are:
Avoid high fat foods
Eat healthy and nutritious foods and multiply vegetables and fruit
Limit salt consumption
