Is it safe to take oral contraceptives (Levora) and Schwartz Green Stinger supplements (ephedra, bitter orange, etc) at the same time?

Is it safe to take oral contraceptives (Levora) and Schwartz Green Stinger supplements (ephedra, bitter orange, etc) at the same time?

Be careful: Ephedra and bitter orange can increase blood pressure. Oral contraceptives can increase risk of blood clot. This combination of increased BP and increased risk of blood clot is not healthy. If you are trying to lose weight, there are better and safer ways to do this. Please discuss with your doctor. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr R ...Read more

Obtain plan B: Although Levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) does contain levonorgestrel, the same form of progesterone found in Plan B one step, it does not contain the same dose. There is only 0.15mg in Levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) versus 1.5mg in Plan B. I suggest you pick up plan B and as long as your friend takes it within 72 hours of intercourse, it still should be effective. ...Read more

Effect of BCP's: How soon the contraceptive effect will begin from bcp's depends upon when in the cycle she starts using it, and is partly dose responsive. I recommend that my patients use a back-up the first month to provide ultimate contraception. ...Read more

Side effects: Those symptoms are listed as possible side effects and are not good. Definitely consult w/ the doctor about alternatives ASAP. Reasons are not as important as avoidance - but they can be easily declared as hormonal imbalances resulting from their artificial manipulation. There are other good birth control choices - seek one and then you both will be healthier and happier. ...Read more

Does prednisone affect the birth control pill, levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel)?

Not aware of: No such interaction I know of. However since prednisone is often used as a semi-emergency measure (for asthma, lupus exacerbation etc), the nature of the illness itself may impact the effectiveness of BCP but this effect would be difficult to measure. ...Read more

I am on birth control (Levora) and had sex on my period without a condom. How safe am I not to get pregnant?

I am on birth control (Levora) and had sex on my period without a condom. How safe am I not to get pregnant?

Safe: If you've been on birth control pills for more than 2-3 weeks, the risk of pregnancy is ~ 1%. Some women like to double up with both pills and condoms to reduce the risk even further. Plus condoms will protect against some STIs. Be sure to take your pill daily at around the same time. Set your cell phone to remind you if you forget. If you tend to forget even with reminders, consider an IUD. ...Read more
