Thanks for posting your query.

Taking vyanase is not likely to reduce the birth control effect of Zarah. But there are reports of decreased efficacy of both the medicines.

The contraceptive effect of Zarah is maintained while side effects may become more prominent.

You can safely combine the two drugs without worrying about getting pregnant.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Wishing you good health.
