Does anyone know whether I can take Relora and Birth control together?  I ask because I feel the high dose birth control raises my cortisol and stress levels and would like it to help my anxiety and sleep.  Thanks.


Oh and what about Relora and Gravol or Pepto Bismol.  Just in case I need those to lighten up some nausea from the contraceptives but would like to also use Relora to bring down the anxiety.

ugh,   high dose can be awful.   Progesterone only is what's good for sleep and calming.    That's why it's good to take the progesterone only pill at night.   I call the b.c. with estrogen included the stress ones.   I have never taken Relora but the science behind it looks good and there doesn't seem to be anything that is contraindicated with b.c.    Other things I have looked into for calming are magnesium,   valerian,   natural methods....I mean nothing works ideally but better than nothing.   Maybe someday I'll try Relora.  I have major stress issues and always have.  If you aren't against it maybe talk to yr doc about the stress reaction and she might suggest some kind of calming pill.   There are tons out there.

Thx Boopy! Awful is right. I’m down to 2 pills a day from 6 pills a day. I still feel either pregnancy like symptoms or menopausal like symptoms. I’m sure they are both almost similar. I feel better knowing that Relora has no contraindications with bcp. That way I can use it if need be.

No calming pills for me from doctors. The only reason I know about Relora is because of the horrific withdrawals off benzos 4.5 years ago. This fragile brain is the reason behind all this bleeding. Relora really saved me. I will choose it over any ativan or xanax any day.

I took it for 6 months straight in the throws of acute withdrawals. You must give it a try. It definitely helps lower cortisol during times of heightened anxiety. Now that I’m no longer in such a detrimental position as I was 4.5 years ago, I’m sure I don’t need it for 6 months. Maybe only as needed cause I definitely don’t want cortisol too low either. With that said, it will aways have a place in my cabinet. Just don’t take with antidepressants and the like.
