From what I learned: this Chinese herb is most often used for insomnia. There is very little reliable information about the interaction of many of these Chinese herbs with prescription medications such as the oral contraceptive Millinette. Personally I think it would be unlikely that Suan... would interfere with the effectiveness of your pill but I can't find data to support. Most cautious: back up until next period.
