Pseudotumor cerebri is a medical condition that increases pressure on the brain due to excessive levels of cerebrospinal fluid inside the skull. This condition produces effects that are similar to a growing brain tumor, often causing severe headaches.
In 1995, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study linking 56 cases of intracranial hypertension (also known as pseudotumor cerebri) and optic disc edema with birth control pills and contraceptive implants containing the hormone levonorgestrel, such as Mirena. Other studies and case reports have linked PTC with exogenous estrogen, progestin-only contraceptive implants, and birth control injections.
If you or a loved one used Mirena, Depo-Provera, Ortho-Evra and were diagnosed with:
- Psuedotumor Cerebri
