Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles

Have you ever known someone who became pregnant while taking the Pill, but who swore she took a tablet every day? The culprit could have been a drug interaction.
Certain drugs, notably anticonvulsant medications and some antibiotics, stimulate enzymes which absorb estrogen and progestins. This means less of the hormones from your OCs are available to prevent pregnancy. These drugs can also act on the Norplant system.

If you need to take these medications for only a few weeks, your doctor will probably advise you to use a backup contraceptive, such as condoms or spermicides. Long­term therapy may require you to switch from hormones. Here are some of the medications which can reduce the effectiveness of OCs and implants:

Antibiotics: rifampin, chloramphenicol, cephalosporins, possibly metronidazole, nitrofurantoin.
Anticonvulsants: phenobarbital, primidone, carbamazepine, ethosuximide, phenytoin.
Antifungals: griseofulvin (does not affect Norplant implants).
