Birth Control

I've been taking birth control for years and recently my bowels have been backed up so, I've taken a quick laxative before as well as a laxative that takes a few days to work and isn't as harsh as an "ex-lax" type of pill. My question is, will taking either of those interfere with my birth control pills? If i need to take a laxative again, when is the timeframe I can take one and not have it interfere with my birth control pills?

Call and ask your pharmacist to be sure. He/she has a list of meds you take and knows the interactions, make the call.
