Hello and thank you for sharing your question.  

Neither Gildess Fe or birth control in general are linked to PVCs.  

Most people have PVCs at some point in their life.  If you are healthy in general there is no cause for concern and no treatment is needed.  However, if you have an underlying heart disease you will definitely need to have that treated.
