Nope: Some of those medications can interact with each other ... But Plan B will not interact with any of the current medications you're taking. Hope that helps!

Yes: Unless there is a complication causing poor absorption from your intestines, you can use birth control pills. Just be sure to ask your surgeon. Also consider more effective methods such as iuds, or if you've completed your family then permanent contraception like hysteroscopic sterilization (essure) or vasectomy for your partner.

Low androgen pill: Androgens are a group of hormones associated with "male traits", acne, hormone-related scalp hair loss, & hair growth in unwanted areas (e.g. facial) in women. Birth control pills contain a Progesterone (androgen) & often estrogen component. Pills with a low or anti- androgen Progesterone component (e.g. Yaz, (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) Yasmin, etc) are often helpful for hormone-related acne. Consult your doctor.

Kind of: Birth control pills can increase the risk of cervical cancer in a round about way. If you have unprotected sex (don't use a condom) because you figure you're safe on the pill to do so, then you may contract the hpv virus which can cause cervical cancer. The vaccine can reduce the chance of you catching this virus. The moral is, birth control pill or not, use a condom to reduce your risk of std's.
