Question: Birth Control for Gastro patient

 scacheerldr - Wed Jul 25, 2007 11:46 am

I am 18 years old and I had ulcerative colitis supposedly caused by an antibiotic..I had most of my colon removed, i had an ileostomy until they reversed it, not it is normal. I was put on orthotricycline low for birth control and i am breaking out in acne, i was wondering if i could take regular orthotricycline and hopefully get rid of breakouts.

User avatar I don't know of any problem with the Ortho tricycline in your situation but you should discuss it with your prescribing physician as he or she could know something about your particular case that is not evident here.
