Why does SimpleHealth need my blood pressure reading?

If you have high blood pressure, taking the wrong kind of birth control can be dangerous, putting you at risk for serious health problems like heart disease and stroke. We need to know your blood pressure so we can prescribe a birth control that won’t put your health at risk. The safest birth control option for people with high blood pressure is most often a progestin-only pill. If you have high blood pressure, our doctors will share all your options with you, and if necessary, recommend you visit an in-person doctor instead.
