I recently became diagnosed with gall bladder disease and had to have it removed due to the birth control ortho tri-cyclen lo. I did read the pamphlet that came with the pills and it states that the risk of gallbladder disease is greater with oral contraceptive users, however it was directed toward pills that contain high doses of estrogen. Was it weird for me to have experienced this issue with the pills or is this common among birth control users that use a pill with low estrogen, such as stated in the ortho tri-cyclen lo?
I don't know if this will help or not, but I was on birth contro pills years ago and I also ended up having to have my Gall Bladder removed, I had gall stones and the doctor told me that it was more than likely caused by my birth control pills, and I have talked to other women who have had problems with their gall bladders due to oral contraceptives. I'm sorry that you had to go through this, and hope you're feeling better.
