Birth Control and Diet Products

I am currently on birth control, the injection/shot and I get it every 3 months. I ordered some diet products online and I havent started taking them yet. I am concerned because I do not want to get preganant anytime soon...will taking the diet pills have some kind of effect on the birth control? The diet products are "Acai Optimum" and "Colon Cleanser Optimum". I havent started taking them yet, but I would like to know if there's any risks involved.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
There can be drug interactions involved between your shot and the content of the diet medication. Avoid taking any products that could cause your shot to be less effective.
Best way to have a healthy life is to eat right and control portion size of food taken wisely. Take help of a dietitian or a nutritionist to help you out.
Speak to a pharmacologist about detailed discussion on the interactions of your shot and the diet product before you start taking them.
Take care.
