The other night I took my birth control pills with water and then about a few minutes later I had a glass of orange juice. I was talking with someone and they said that's going to mess it up because of the acidity of the orange juice.
What do I do now?
Is it okay to have unprotected sex or no?
I'm on ortho tri cyclen lo and I take my pills every day at the same time.
I have never heard of OJ messing with birth control. I really don't think it will cause and harm. Heck I drink a glass every morning with breakfast right after I take my pill if it dose effect Birth control I'd probably be pregnat by now
I don't think you have to worry about orange juice. It's grapefruit juice that interacts with some medications, but I don't think birth control is one of them. You can always call a pharmacist and find out because they would know. There is a certain substance in the grapefruit juice that causes an interaction with certain meds. I have never heard it being a problem with birth control though.
