Gluten And Dairy Free Birth Control

11 posts in this topic

Hi,

I need to find a birth control pill that does not have gluten or dairy used as a binder. Does anyone know of some names of pills that I can run by my doc?

Thanks

I don't know if you would consider this but before I got pregnant I was on the birth control patch, Orthoevra. I really liked it and never had a problem with it. (I didn't get pregnant on the patch, I went off when we started trying)

I had the same issue- was looking for gluten-free and DF birth control. I don't think there are any pills out there that fit that criteria. I am also using the patch and it has worked well so far!

I actually had used the patch for awhile before all of this had started...whenever I put a new patch on I would feel so nauseous for a few few days, almost like morning sickness. That may be a good option again at this point if the pill is out.

There was a thread on this a while ago. I take Yaz which I really like, but it does have dairy in it. It's really not enough to make me react though. Also, someone said it was a really pure form of dairy, so it doesn't matter?? I don't know...but you may want to find the old thread on this.

My doctor took me and all of his patients off the patch as it has a higher risk of dangerous side effects than the pill.

According to an earlier post, Kariva (which is the generic of Mircette), is Gluten-free Casein-free. However, I was unable to verify that information.

Also, read this: http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/stevecarper/BCP.htm

Have you considered an IUD? It is more effective, safer, and no need to remember every day.

All of these look like good possibilities. Does anyone take Demulen? I never take the placebos anyway, so that isn't a concern!

I am actually on the nuvaring now, but my doctor thinks I am hyper sensitive and that it is affecting my GI tract. I can' get rid of d after I insert the ring each month, so we thought we'd try something "less invasive". I think an IUD would operate in much the same way.

I think that was me who said that. Basically, it's my understanding that pharmaceutical grade lactose is pure in the sense that it should not contain any casein. For people who are "just" lactose intolerant, it shouldn't be enough to cause a reaction.

I don't know though. I just started a new pill (Nordette), and I have some weird symptoms that are very similiar to what I experienced when I did a dairy challenge (with goat cheese) a while back.

I'm wondering if it's possible to find out if certain pills contain less lactose than others?

So I've done some research and it looks like microgestin might be a good option. It has anhydrous lactose, but I thought I remembered reading that is not an issue. Any thoughts?

There are no pills without lactose - but some people on here take it with no affects. I personally don't / can't.
