Is there any way to use both St. John's Wort and oral contraception effectively?

I've recently started taking St. John's Wort and have had great results. Unfortunately, it seems to cause my pills to stop working. My cycle has been erratic at best since I started taking St. John's Wort. Are there types of birth control pills that have less interaction?

Where is the hospital I was born at? (in Brooklyn, NY)

Where is the hospital I was born at? (in Brooklyn, NY) I am trying to figure out what has become of the hospital I was born at. I was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1969. The hospital on my Birth Certificate says "Brooklyn Jewish Medical Center". My family moved to Queens a few years after I was born and then I moved out of New York altogether when I was 27. I never really knew Brooklyn that well, although I have been trying to visit there more over the years. [more inside]

Birth control blues

I am in my foruth month of Microgestin pills. I started taking the pills to help control my blackheads but just this month I started breaking out with really bad cystic acne. I tend to get deprresed easily and have always had severe cramps. I was wondering if anyone with matching ailments has any advice on birth control. I have taken several and quit early on due to spotting or worsening cramps. I am thinking of switching to Yasmin because of its reputation with acne sufferers. Any suggestions?

Stomach-safe Birth Control Pills?

About six months ago, my girlfriend went on The Pill - first Yasmin, then Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo. Both caused mood swings and significant intestinal distress, but her physicians (internist and OBGYN) thought that she'd be safe to stay on, if she could put up with the side effects. This month, as a test, she went off, and she feels hugely better. So, now, we're considering alternatives, and looking for anecdotal advice. [more inside]

Privacy, disclosure and past medical records

Is there any medical reason to disclose a past abortion (uncomplicated, several years ago, at 8 weeks) to my new OB-Gyn, who will (hopefully) be ushering me through a successful pregnancy and birth? There is no existing medical record that I know of, since the procedure was done at a clinic in another state, and wasn't claimed on insurance, because I didn't have any at the time.
