Contraception

Cortisone does not interact with birth control pills (either estrogen-progestin or progestogen). There is no indication of potential harm caused by the use of corticosteroids and birth control at the same time.

However, due to cortisone's anti-inflammatory properties, it may decrease the effectiveness of an IUD (intrauterine device).

Good to know
  • Tell your doctor that you use an IUD before beginning corticosteroids.
