Pill made my blood pressure skyrocket!

I don't use the pill, either. I use the Depo Provera shot and I don't get bloated. The only "side effect" I have is that I don't really have a period anymore. I may have a very, very light one every 6 months or so in order for my body to "clean itself out" but I really don't have them. I personally don't consider this a side effect, except I'm always paranoid I'm pregnant. It's just as effective as the pill, but there is always that 3% chance. I love it because if I had to rely upon taking a pill every day, I'd have 20 kids by now!! Hope this helps!
