Will green tea extracts predispose my contraceptive capsule?

I’ve been taking the contraceptive pill Femodene for about a year now. I also take extract of green tea to boost my energy.

Because of my health I have a question about taking of green tea and  contraceptive pill together.  Would the green tea extract prevent the pill from working?
I drink green tea, but I’m not sure if the extracts are any different and the only information the tablets give me is not to take them if your taking medication like warfarin or ones that cause the blood to thin.

1. Ask your pharmacist or physician. Green tea can have drug interactions, the known ones are linked below scroll down to Potential Interactions. Birth normalize capsules aren’t listed, well you never know.

2. I honestly do not consider they will have any result on them; but all contraceptives are different. You should ask your pharmacist just to ensure, except I only know of some certain antibiotics that really do only lower the effectiveness of birth control.

What exactly is green tea?

A green tea extract is a herbal derivative from green tea leaves . Containing antioxidant ingredients – mainly green tea catechins (GTC) – green tea and its derivatives are sought-after amongst people who pursue health.
