Can valerian (valeriana officinalis) can interfere with my combination birth control pill?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Valerian is a root, used as a supplement to help with sleep.

On researching this, I have not read that Valerian interferes with birth control but it's important to check with a doctor or pharmacist to confirm this.
