Here is My Question:
Do birth control medications, preferably the Depo shot, interfere with MS medications? From the another side, does the effectiveness of MS medications decline when taken with a birth control medication? My teen aged daughter is having problems with her monthly cycles and the recommendation is to use birth control to regulate the cycles.
Your question really has three parts, so let me answer each sequentially:
