I was wandering if anyone has taken hoodia with birth control? I would like to use hoodia to supress my appetite and I know it works to lose weight but I am really afraid to try it, because i'm afraid it will interact with my ortho lo. I have asked my doctor, pharmacist and a hoodia product maker and nobody knows because there hasn't been enough testing and its so new to us. (so if any one has any insight I definately welcome it.) :? I am desperate for answers.

The only known herb to interact with birth control is saint johns wort, and I have known women to use hoodia with birth contro and were fine.
