Taking contraception pills is easy. We drink each day at the same time and their action can be reduced if we are sick.
However, many women do not know that when they are taking these tablets, they are not allowed to consume grapefruit or drink juice from it, why this fruit can destroy the action of these pills.
It has not yet been demonstrated that it completely destroys the action, but it increases the side effects, precisely why grapefruit affects an enzyme found in the intestine that affects the digestion of drugs and their absorption.
Grapefruit feeding can result in an increase or decrease in this enzyme, which may disrupt the absorption of the pill.
