Default HBP

All the comments so far speak of nothing about high blood pressure.<br>I've been on Ortho-Tri for 1 year and 4 months and my most recent visit at the clinic (February 08) I found out that I had high blood pressure 132/80.<br>I've been on it for so long and my last vist(october 07) I had normal blood pressure so it's scary knowing that I have that high of a reading for being only 19yrs old. I'm still on the pill but after reading all the comments online I'm no longer going to continue taking it.<br>I've also been experiencing shortness of breath & increased heart rate.<br>I really don't want any cardiovascular problems.<br>Is there a pill out there that has less progestron(sp)because I hear that's what causes hbp for women who take birth control.<br>
