Biobust Query
Good day,

I was wondering if you are able to assist me with a product query.

I would like to take a product called - Biobust

Ingredients:
Avena Sativa Powder, Black Cohosh Extract 4:1, Mexican Wild Yam, Dong Quai, Blessed Thistle, Damiana Leaf Extract 25%, Fennel Seed, Fenugreek Powder, Mothers Wart, Saw Palmetto, Norwegian Kelp, Humulus Lupulus, L-Tyrosine.

The concern I have is that the insert stipulates that the product "Should" not have an effect on contraceptives. (Should and WILL NOT are very different)

Is there a way of confirming this? I have been on triphasel for the past ten years. Please advise if it would affect my contraceptive.

I await your response.

Kind regards and many thanks,
OW

Most of these products have not been tested with the Pill, so the effects are not known.
