Ok, so I have heard of a couple people who say they got pregnant while taking birthcontrol because they were taking some other kind of medicine. I am starting my BC on this sunday, so if I were to take Midol, or tylenol, would that interfer with the BC working properly? Thanks!!

Prescription and non-prescription medicines and recreational drugs may interfere with the effectiveness of your birth control pills. Known interactions occur with high doses of vitamins, anticonvulsants, Valium, diuretics and short-term antibiotics.

Some antibiotics, valium, and anticonvulsants are the main medicines that interfere with birth control.

Midol and tylenol do not interfere with it. Of course, if you are going to take any medicines, or vitamins (I believe high doses of some vitamins can interfere with bcp) then you should ask your doctor if it will affect the effectiveness of the pill.

I agree with the PP. Just ask your dr if your not sure. I don't think those interfere with bcp.
