Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

no, these raspberry tabelets will not affect your contraceptive pill.

Dr. David :

no, they will not affect your Microgynon 30ED birth control pill

JACUSTOMER-gekp8j0j- :

Are there no ingredients present in these raspberry tablets that will interfere with Microgynon 30 ED? I am worried as don't want to start taking these tablets if they will stop my contraceptive pill working

Dr. David :

don't be worried.

Dr. David :

it will not affect your birth control pills.

JACUSTOMER-gekp8j0j- :

Absolutely not? I always take my birth control pills correctly and on time so I do not want to take the risk of reducing/stopping them working by taking another pill that is not medically needed by myself as I am sure you will understand. However, if you are sure that there are no ingredients on my list that stop Microgynon working I will continue with my two tablets a day

Dr. David :

no worries.

Dr. David :

Dr. David :

do you see the feedback area below?

JACUSTOMER-gekp8j0j- :

so there are definitely NO risks with me taking these raspberry ketones alongside microgynon 30ED?

Dr. David :

no risks with it affecting your birth control pills.

Dr. David :

you keep asking me the same question.

JACUSTOMER-gekp8j0j- :

I just like to make sure. but if you assure me there are no risks I will take your word for it

JACUSTOMER-gekp8j0j- :

thank you very much

Dr. David :

I am still here.

Dr. David :

Dr. David :

hello?

JACUSTOMER-gekp8j0j- :

i feel like i have been made to feel quite bad for asking similar questions. i am worried and would just like the piece of mind and for you to say 'you are asking the same question' is making me feel guilty/bad for being worried and repeatedly saying 'leave ++++ feedback etc' makes me feel quite on the spot

JACUSTOMER-gekp8j0j- :

i appreciate you are busy but i cannot help being worried

JACUSTOMER-gekp8j0j- :

and due to feeling this way i do not feel as though i should pay for the way i have been made to feel.

Dr. David :

I didn't mean to make you feel bad or guilty.

Dr. David :

that was not my intention.

Dr. David :

but I am not sure how to make you feel less worried.

Dr. David :

I keep saying that there is no interaction

Dr. David :

it sounds like you are very worried that your birth control pills might not work.

Dr. David :

it sounds like you are worried that you could get pregnant.

JACUSTOMER-gekp8j0j- :

i just wanted to know that i will not get pregnant if i take these raspberry ketones alongside my microgynon pills, i never forget to take my contraceptives so that would not be an issues

Dr. David :

you will not get pregnant.

Dr. David :

I promise you that you will not get pregnant if you keep taking your birth control pills.

Dr. David :

if you are that worried, you should not take the raspberry ketone pills.

JACUSTOMER-gekp8j0j- :

that is why i was contacting you, if there was a risk that these raspberry ketones would stop/reduce the effectiveness of my birth control pills i would not take them. but if you say there is no risk of me getting pregnant by me taking the raspberry ketones i will take them

Dr. David :

there is no risk.

JACUSTOMER-gekp8j0j- :

thank you. i will rate your service as good but i have requested a refund from just answer as i am unhappy with the way i was made to feel but thank you for your time

Dr. David :

thanks for using JustAnswer.com
