High BP & IUD

Does anyone else notice BP elevation after IUD insertion?  I started on IUD since 8/1/2018 (3 months ago).  My BP has been averaging 130/85 compared to my normal BP 100/60.  I thought it was some sort of kidney dysfunction since I also have multiple bilateral moderately complex kidney cysts.  But I’ve heard at least one other lady who had the same BP issue with IUD.  Thus, I wonder if IUD (progesterone only ones) can indeed significantly elevate blood pressure.  Please share your knowledge, thoughts, and experiences on this topic.  Thank you!

Hormones can impact blood pressure. I'm proof positive.  I'd call your doctor as this may not be the best thing for you!  Let me know how you are doing!
