My daughter is diabectic, and as High blood pressure. The other birth control pills are not working?

Do you mean progesterone?
The progesterone only or "mini pill" is a safer alternative for your daughter because of her diabetes and high blood pressure (estrogen is best avoided).
There are no long term effects on fertility.
For a detailed link to the risks and benefits of birth control pills see:
