Will the OxyElite Pro fat burner affect the efficacy of the Yaz contraceptive if both are taken regularly?

User avatar Hello,
Nutritional supplements are not regulated or tested by the FDA so little is known about their interactions with medications but I am not aware of an such supplements affecting oral contraceptives. I have not seen any literature suggesting this could be a problem.

Best wishes.
