Sea Kelp & the contraceptive pill?
Q:My boyfriend has been taking Sea Kelp for a couple of months and he feels so much better. I am having problems with my weight and I bite my nails so this would be the perfect thing for me to take. However …… does anyone know if it affects the contraceptive pill i.e. Microgynon? I know St. Johns Wort does and the websites all just say “..some herbal remedies” may affect it. Any help would be gratefully recieved!!

Thee are no contraindications regarding the pill, but if you have any thyroid problems, heart, blood pressure etc, stay well clear.Also if you do ever get pregnant, stop taking it, as it can cause uterine contractions and can cause you to miscarry the baby.
