Can BCP cause Ischemic Colitis?
I ended up in ER last week after extreme pain. I thought I had a blockage.  My lipase and amalyse levels were high and a ct scan showed mild Pancreatitis. The reports also said that Ischemic Colitis could not be ruled out.

I started BCP in July, with no issues. I was taken off the pill last weekl.  The doctors say there is a small chance that the pill couldve caused this.

Any thoughts?

I have no idea how I got either affliction and the doctors are stymied also.  An endoscopy has been suggested for my descending colon.

Thanks.
My daughter has crohns disease but im 44 with no known IBS issues. Im pretty healthy.

Thank you!

Hi there!

BCPs can increase the clotting capacity of blood which could occasionally cause clogged blood vessels/ ischaemia especially in the presence of an underlying cause. There may be a small possibility for the BCP to be responsible for the ischaemic colitis.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
