Can I drink cranberry juice on birth control?

Sounds silly. But double checking is it ok to drink cranberry juice while on the combined birth control pill?

Will it reduce the effectiveness?

    Cranberry juice is fine.

    GRAPEFRUIT (juice, fruit, or supplements) is not, if your pills contain estrogen.

    Grapefruit may worsen side effects, but it doesn't make them less effective.

      Yes, it does. But with birth control pills is slows metabolism of the estrogen, which can increase side effects.
