Oral contraceptives rob your body of essential minerals and vitamin B. If you take an oral contraceptive you may want to consider taking a probiotic, vitamin B's, and essential minerals like magnesium; in addition to eating antioxidant rich foods. When your body becomes mineral deficient, it may falsely increase your risk for other medications: thyroid meds, antidepressants, anti-anxiety meds, cardiovascular meds. If you understand how oral contraceptives work in your body you will then understand how you can optimally maintain your own health. A bit of information you may find useful. To your health!
