Tecfidera & contraception

Hi All,

I started Tecfidera on the 6th Jan and apart from a bit of flushing & some stomach cramps, haven’t felt too bad. My question is regarding contraception. I currently have the implant fitted, but no-one seems to know if it’s safe to carry on with this, whilst taking Tecfidera. It seems to be suggested that non-hormonal forms of contraception are recommended - condoms, the coil, etc.

Is anyone else out there taking Tecfidera, whilst having the implant fitted?

Thanks,

Sarah
