Would any type of birth control (besides only condoms) be safe to use or take while I am taking zoloft (sertraline)? I absolutely don't want bad interactions.

In brief: Birth control on zol

Antidepressants decrease the effectiveness of birth control, but fortunately zoloft and wellbutrin (bupropion) effect it the least.
I suggest you use a backup method with oral contraceptives while on an antidepressants, maybe an iud or a vaginal condomn, or your partner use a condomn.
