BIRTH CONTROL PILLS AND MILK THISTLE

HAVE DONE SOME RESEARCH AND HAVE READ THAT WOMEN THAT ARE ON BITH CONTROL PILLS SHOULD NOT TAKE MILK THISTLE.

I HAD MY GALLBLADDER REMOVED OVER 7 YEARS AGO AND WITH THE LIVER HAVING TO NOW WORK OVER-TIME, A BIOPSY SHOWED THAT I HAVE A FATTY LIVER.  MILK THISTLE SHOWS MANY BENEFITS TO IMPROVE LIVER HEALTH AND WAS GOING TO TRY IT BUT NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF GETTING PREGNANT.  IS THIS TRUE?

Talk to the dr who gave you the BC and ask them what they think. Maybe there is an alt method that you could use, that would not be affected by the milk thistle.
If there is not, maybe see if there is an alt to the milk thistle that will be just as effective for your health without being affected by the BC.
Good Luck.
