Re: does birth control affect VVS?

From: Lorraine


I've heard that hormones could be a trigger for VVS episodes......but it's very doubtful, sinc many men have this disorder, too.

I would think your birth control pills wouldn't be a problem, unless they make you sick to your stomach....severe nausea is a trigger for some people.
