In brief: Do not waste your $

Do not waste your time with "weight loss supplements".
Green coffee beans are just the latest in a long line of overhyped fads. If you want to achieve weight loss, reduce your carbs to a bare minimum, drink only water, eat lots of low starch veggies and increase your activity levels.

In brief: Unlikely

Green coffee bean extract is unlikely to interact with you birth control.
Most likely component of green coffee bean extract is high caffeine which can make you jittery. One component of the extract is chlorogenic acid which has been reported to demonstrate antioxidant properties. Chlorogenic acid is also found in artichokes.
