Our expert says:
As I have mentioned to a number of other Readers lately, any slimming or sports product that causes constant loose stools or diarrhoea, can interfere with the absorption of contraceptive pills and possibly lead to pregnancy. I would advise you to discuss this matter with the medical dr who has prescribed your contraceptive before you take any other types of medications, including over-the-counter or herbal ones. Check with your pharmacist if the slimming products contain any laxatives that can cause diarrhoea.
