Cardiomyopathy & menstrual issues/meds

I have dilated cardiomyopathy and LBBB, age 46. Recently I have been experiencing abnormal uterine bleeding that I am trying to address. My OB/Gyn suggested birth control pills. Does anyone have experience with this & is it safe to take BC pills with my condition(s)?

    Hi there,

    I am 44, and also have dilated cardiomyopathy and LBBB, am on beta blockers and ACE inhibitors. Have been on Microgynon pill for 14 years and have been absolutely fine, doctor didn't even mention it when I started my meds, so assume it isn't an issue!

    I am 46 with dilated cardiomyopathy and LBBB and have been on the same birth control pill for years due to PCOS and when they discovered my heart problem last June nothing was mentioned about stopping the birth control pill when they placed me on Entresto and generic for Coreg.  My doctors were very specific about all of my meds...so there shouldn't be a problem.
