Will Zendo dieters tea decrease the effectiveness of my birth control? I am taking Mononessa birth control.
Not an issue: Your pills are absorbed in the small gut and the tea, whose main ingredient is senna, which stimulates the large bowel.

If past first pack,: If a woman is taking her birth control pills properly each day, and is already past her first pack of pills, then her chances of getting pregnant, regardless of whether or not he is using condoms, is about the same... very, very low. Condoms help prevent infections and some odors, so are good to use. If her monthly withdrawal periods keep coming and look normal, she is presumed not pregnant.
If I am taking augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for 2 weeks for sinusitis while on Mononessa (birth control) could that cause me to ovulate and/or breakthrough spotting?

This is also why it is always advisable to use a backup method of birth control while on such antibiotics.See 1 more doctor answer

Is there a prevention difference between TriNessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) and MonoNessa birth controls? Is there a difference between the generic and namebrand?
Dosages: They both should prevent a pregnancy with the same efficacy. The big difference is that MonoNessa has the same dosage of the norgestimate component all 3 "active pill" weeks, whereas the TriNessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) has 3 increasing doses each of those 3 weeks which can help some women better control irregular cycles, abnormal bleeding, or PMS symptoms. There should be no difference between generic and name brand.See 1 more doctor answer
