does anyone know a brand name of a dairy-free birth control pill? i stopped taking mine as i am severely allergic to casein, however, complications have arisen and my doctors need me to go on it. i can get the shot, but if there is a dairy-free pill, that would be great - i've just yet to fnd one.<br><br><br><br>
thanks!

Thanks, I just checked it, too, and yes, it has lactose. I googled the words "dairy-free birth control" and came up with a few sites that said NO pills are dairy-free. That's fine - and because this isn't for birth control and for something else, I can take hormone replacement therapy - my internist had suggested the pill to make it easier on me, but I guess it won't work out.<br><br>
Thanks anyway.

The shot is cool. You only need to get it once every three months and it makes your periods go away. I was on the shot for a long time.
