How does one take laxatives properly with birth control pills? Hi. I have this weight loss laxative tea containing senna and i took it 7pm 3 hours after i took my birth control pills. The website where i got the tea warned "Yes, the teatox can potentially reduce the effectiveness of birth control if you take your pill within 4-5 hours of the laxative effect." the next day i took my pill 4pm as usual and 20 min later i went to the bathroom. Was it possible that i have pooped my pill out?? It wasn't watery bowel movement it was normal. Also does this affect the effectiveness of my pill?
You are going to have to take that so you don't get diarrhea right after the pill. The best thing to do is not use it until you talk to your dr.
