TK VITAMINS & SUPPLEMENTS

TK VITAMINS & SUPPLEMENTS THAT MIGHT INTERACT WITH YOUR BIRTH CONTROL

If you are on a birth control method, especially functioning with hormones, I discourage using the following supplements;

Iron

Are you on any birth control pills? If so, I recommend staying away from iron supplements unless your doctor prescribes because you are likely to overload your body with too much iron. As a result, your body may experience vomiting and stomach issues. Suppose the condition is not corrected, excessive iron in blood can be toxic.

B vitamins

There are claims that B vitamins can interact with birth control pills to harm the body. But it is not yet proved. The main problem is that pills can reduce B vitamins, such as, B12, B9, and B6. It is best to consult a doctor before use.

Using the acquired academic and professional experience, I advise patients with various complaints about mental health - depressed mood, nervousness, lack of energy and interest, sleep disorders, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts and anxieties, difficulty concentrating, and stress. In my free time, I love to paint and go on long walks on the beach. One of my latest obsessions is sudoku – a wonderful activity to calm an unease mind.
