Question: Birth control pill and vitmains..is it safe?


 blondie83 - Sun Apr 13, 2008 9:33 pm

I drink a vitmain supplement drink almost everyday which is high in vitmain C. I heard somewhere that it is not safe to take a lot of vitamin c with a birth control pill. Is this true?

User avatar There should be no problem with vitamin C interfering with your birth control pill. High doses of vitamin C (1000 mg) may increase the estrogen absoprtion but this does not have an adverse effect on the pill to prevent pregnancy.

Best wishes.
