I am 4 shots into my loading jabs and have just read my prescription for cobalin and it says that the oral contraceptive pill affects the way the b12 works. I'm now very concerned as my doctor knows I am on birth control but didn't mention this when she prescribed it. I was hoping to try for a baby very soon, but am putting off trying until my b12 levels are up. Level was 181 before b12 injections started. Should I be questioning the prescription? Also, my blood tests for folates and intrinsic factor came back as low but I was advised just the b12 injections were needed, no mention of pernicious anemia. But after reading other comments it would appear if you have no intrinsic factor this is pernicious anaemia. I don't want to question the doctor as I'm sure they know best but I don't want to start trying for a baby until I know my body is fully ready!
