The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either no history of birth control pill use or history of birth control pill use, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Gallbladder Disease

According to National Institutes of Health, the progestins used in birth control pills in general increase the risk of gallstone formation by raising cholesterol levels in the bile and reducing gallbladder movement.
