I have some digestive issues and gas, which led me to try anise and fennel tea. I am also on bc Alesse. About 30 minutes after taking my pill, I was sipping on some tea when, ironically, read about possible interactions online and how it MIGHT decrease bc effectiveness.

Other than a few sips, I haven't had any more. Should I be concerned and has anyone had any side effects from fennel and anise?
