I don't think it has ever been tested to see if the calcium can interfer with BC pills but if it were me because the BC pills now a days have such a low dose of hormones I would be sure to take my BC pill at least 4 hours apart from the calcuim to be sure.This is just my opinion.Linda
*Hitting self on the head.*When in doubt, call a pharmacist. I was totally freaking out here about possibly not being able to take my calcium anymore. So I called my pharmacist and asked him if the calcium supplements affect my BCP, and he said "NO." No hesitating, no looking anything up, just flat-out "NO."
