Cortisone & The Pill
Hi, I am severely asthmatic and had a cortisone injection yesterday.
I have also been given 5 days worth (4 tablets a day) of cortisone pills and have been given a cortisone inhaler.
Will this affect the efficiency of the Pill (I take Nordette)? I do not want to risk a pregnancy. Please advise, thank you. KIRA

Kira, cortisone will not affect the efficacy of the pill. Good luck.
