Post Can hormone imbalance or change increase the risk of canker sores?

I had heard both ways and just wanted to see what kind of responses I would get here. Thanks to everyone who responds!!!

Since it was already posted that docs don't know what causes canker sores there is no way of knowing for sure if hormone fluctuation could be a cause or not.

I would get canker soars quite often around my PMS time of my cycle (about 1 week b4 period).. I've always assuemd it may have been due to the fluctuation of hormone levels during that time.

This is the oddest thing, but I just stopped taking yasmin (bcp), it's only my second day of not taking it, but guess what I've got...yep, a canker sore! Frankly I think it has more to do with the cold I seem to be fending off, but I must say I found it odd to see this thread and realize that I've got one!

Who knows, but from what I hear, I need to take more vitamin C in order to deal with it.

Still find it odd though!

Hi all -

I just stopped taking lupron and estrogen, and just about every part of my body has been affected. I have no idea if canker sores are part of it - I don't ahve any - but my doc says anything can happen when hormones are "off." I don't discount anything anymore when it comes to hormones.

Myname,

I did hear that too much vitamin C does cause canker sores, so be careful!

Be sure to that you are talking about a canker sore and not a cold sore as cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus and are contagious. The docs don't know what causes canker sores so the excess vitamin C theory is just that................a theory and nothing more.

Just to clarify, cankers are inside the mouth and cold sores are on the outside, right?

Yes, canker sores are on the inside of the mouth, while cold sores are found on the outside.
