I read that taking high doses of vitamin C decreases birth control effectiveness. I take 1060 mg of vitamin C daily and on seasonique.

In brief: VitaminC is safe and

No it does not have any effect on it.
If you have any concern you can lower your vitamin c to 500 mg per day which is more than plenty for your daily vitamin c needs.

In brief: Interaction

The only interaction that i can find is that Estradiol levels maybe increased.
This should not decrease effectiveness.
