I am trying to find a birth control pill that is gluten free, dairy free and soy free. I have called several pharmacetical companies and no one has one. Does anyone know of any? Thank you for any help you can provide.

I believe YAZ is gluten free, dairy free, and soy free. It's what I use and I love it.

All pills have lactose in them. You'll have to use the patch, shot, or condoms.

Thanks for the info. I was given incorrect or outdated information. I was told that pharmaceutical grade lactose would cause no problems.

It is news to me that "All pills have lactose in them." Do you mean all pills, or are you only referring to oral contraceptives? :unsure:

As to the original question, I suppose it depends on which component of dairy you are sensitive to.

Lactose is milk sugar, and it can be present without the milk protein, casein.

A person can be intolerant to casein, or to lactose, or to both.

That can't be--there are plenty of pills without lactose. ;) I know most BC pills do contain it--there's one called "Demulen" that I believe does not.

I have spent hours calling pharmaceutical companies and have not found an oral contraceptive without lactose in them. The Demulen is no longer made and that was the only one available without lactose. Most of the estrogen is soy based also. Thanks for everyone who responded!

Does anyone know of any natural supplements that would help with the discomfort of monthly cycles?

Thanks again for all your help!
