Im wondering if anyone is able to tell me if taking the pill can effect your asthma?
I changed my contraceptive pill a few weeks ago to a higher dose and it may just be a coincidence but also in the past few weeks i have noticed my asthma has worsened.
Before i was only having to use my ventalin every so often (Maybe 2 or 3 times a week) or when exercising.  Now i am waking up in the morning wheezing, if i walk around to much a work during the day i start wheezing and at night before bed i start wheezing.
So i have gone from using ventalin 3 times a week to 3 times a day. 
Is it possible that my pill has anything to do with this?
Any idea's of the issue would be appreciated.

I've been on the pill for about a year and a half. I haven't noticed any change in my asthma, but everyone is different.

a wonderful site is you can check all your medications there, side effects and even a interaction checker, which I love, as I can check ALL my medications against each other and see whats up

I've been on Nuvaring for 4 years, no asthma problems. No side effects or allergic reactions
