I wanted to ask whether I can take the contraceptive

Resolved Question:

Hi
I wanted to ask whether I can take the contraceptive pill ( I take Yasmin) with Agnus Castus. I intend on coming off the pill but I don't want to shock my body so I wanted to take both together for 3 months and then come off the pill. Is this a good idea?

Hello
Completely un necessary
There is no reason to stay on yasmin for 3 months.
And in fact taking these together might mess up the action of both.
You need to be under the supervision of a doctor familiar with both types of treatment.
If I were in charge, I would stop the yasmin, monitor and use the chaste tree as indicated...or other interventions.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
