contraceptives & libido booster
hi there.

I bought myself "libido booster with horny goat weed" for men and woman, by Impotex, but I first want to find out if it is going to have negative effects on the contraceptive (yasmin), that i am using at the moment. I dont want to fall pregnant now, as we cant afford to at the moment. I thought it would maybe help, if i include the list of ingredients found in these capsules:

Epimedium 1000 mg Cyanocobalamin 1ìG
Ashwaganda 1000 mg Ascorbic Acid 60 mg
Maca 1000 mg Vitamin D3 5 ìG
St. John's Wort 100 mg Biotin 0.1 mg
Vitamin A 3300 IU Folic Acid 0.2 mg
Thiamine 1.4 mg Nicoitinamide 18 mg
Riboflavin 1.6 mg Pantothenic Acid 6 mg
Pyrodoxin 2 mg Vitamin E 149 IU
Horny Goat Weed

I would really appreciate any advice and recommendations. I've read that a certain amount of Ascorbic Acid, can affect contraceptives.

Dear Kitty
No this will probably not affect your contraceptive - high doses of vit C (1000mg per day) may influence the pill.
