Birth control/diet pill question

Patient : I am currently taking the depo shot since December 2014. Can taking any type diet pill affect the depo shot any?
Symptoms:  Started period
Doctor :   Hello, If you have been on depot since december then it is likely that your bleeding would stop completely in 2-3 mont hs and in the meantime you may experience irregular bleeding. Diet pills can produce decreased efficacy of the depot and may cause ineffective contraceptive control, so ideally should be avoided. I hope i have answered your query in detail, wishing you good health, regards
