I take the birth control Orthocept. Is there any drug interaction with this and St Johns Wort?

Yes, there is a moderate drug interaction between Ortho-cept and St. John's Wort. Avoid taking them together.

The effectiveness of oral contraceptives may be reduced if taken with St. John's Wort.

Please see link below for interaction in detail.

I take Aviane birth control pills. And I heard St. Johns Wort does affect my pills. Check with your doctor to be safe ...
