The Risk of Gall Bladder Problems When on Birth Control Pills

Women, women who eat high fat diets, women who are pregnant and women who are on birth control pills can suffer gall stones. There does seem to be slight differences in risk from the different pill formulations.
The estrogen in birth control pills can increase risks of gall bladder attacks, and the excess risk varies with the type of progesterone in pills. The risks vary between increasing risk 5% to increasing risk about 20% with the drospirenone containing pills usually coming out on the higher end of risk statistics.
