I have been on birth control for about a year, and this week my doctor gave me a cortisone shot, supposedly to help my allergies. Will this interfere with my birth control?
Should I be worried to have protected sex after having this injection? How long will it stay in my system for?
PLEASE help!

Hi Anon,

Please check with your doctor or pharmacist for answers to your questions. You should be able to call a 24hr pharmacy and speak with a pharmacist.

You can also look up your birth control in our Drug and Medication Guide for information. In the meantime use other forms of protection during sex.

Hope this is helpful,
Elizabeth
