My Mood: birth control pills and st. johns wort
Default birth control pills and st. johns wort

Anyone has any experiences taking st. johns wort in pills or drinking the tea while on BCP ? I know it will affect it so you can become pregnant, but what other effects can it have ( I don't worry about getting pregnant ) , break trough bleeding, etc ?

Yes, St. John's wort would reduce effectiveness of the BC's.
There may be withdrawal bleeding.
Seems most of the BC actions would be lost...why bother using them at all then?

Here is a list to consult about other medications etc with St.John's Wort:
