Thanks for the query.

Agaricus is a medicinal mushroom used in alternative medicines.There have been no studies to indicate that this has a drug interaction with birth control pills.There are no reports to indicate that there is any change in effectiveness.
Agaricus does,however,interact with diabetes drugs.

Be careful about how much agaricus you ingest.Make sure you are properly supervised.
