I'm new to the concept of ingesting mushrooms and am still a bit unclear on some things. I still have yet to partake, but have taken a great interest in tripping and have been researching (on the Internet and out in nature) for many hours everyday for the past few days. I'm 21, live in the Pacific Northwest, and never thought of finding my own shrooms until a couple days ago. I've even ordered "Mushrooms Demystified: A Comprehensive Guide to the Fleshy Fungi" to educate myself in the hunting and identifying of psychedelic mushrooms so I can provide for myself.
Anyway, on to my question. My girlfriend shares a common interest in tripping and has been supporting my research and will be joining in the hunts and trips. We are both new and neither of us have taken a hallucinogen before (although, we have smoked weed). The only concern we have is that she is currently taking birth control pills and, since Penicillin and other drugs/anti-biotics can nullify or decrease "the pill"'s effectiveness, we're worried mushrooms could have the same effect (nullification). I'm not quite ready to be a dad!
If anyone out there has information on this topic that can help, please let me know! Thanks!
I can see no reason why they would interact at all. Taking medication that "nullify" the pill is somewhat different to taking a natural hallucinogen. I do not have any evidence to suggest what i am saying is true, however logically i cannot fathom how it would have any interaction/negative effect on your girlfriend.
