I would also like to offer my apologies for not responding to your first post - but I -uhm, well I don't have those parts any more! So I can't be of much help when it comes to things like birth control, menes, and other similar female issues.
I do know that I have read a number of time that LD patients on birth control need to do their research, as Jessica said - certain abx will reduce the effectiveness of the birth control pills. They recommend that other forms of birth control be used. I just can't remember which abx were being spoke of! Ack! Good ole Lymie brain!!!
I would encourage you - and any other women here - check into your meds carefully to be sure that they don't effect your birth control - no need for oopses at this point in one's life!

I break up my post because my eyes have been effected by TBI's as well, making long paragraphs very hard to read.
