Raquin Posted June 28, 2009 Share Posted June 28, 2009 My neuro failed to tell me that Tegretol interacts with not just birth control, but specifically the type of birth control I'm on (Microgestin FE) which he KNEW I was on (I told him multiple times). Guess who's had condomless sex with her boyfriend? Luckily I got my period, BUT what the fuck??? My question is: Is there any birth control that Tegretol does NOT decrease the effectiveness of? I'm so upset. Why wouldn't the doctors (PLURAL) tell me this? I could have gotten pregnant! It's not like Lamictal where it decreases the effectiveness of the Lamictal, it decreases the effectiveness of my BIRTH CONTROL! GAH!!!!!!!1!1!!!!!!! So yeah, any birth control I can take that will be safe from Tegretol? It's OK if it reduces the effect of the Tegretol, I'm not as concerned about that right now. Thank you!!!! Condoms and I don't get along so well, and it's not because I just don't like them, trust me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
