I have heard that people who take oral contraceptives are at a greater risk for getting dry socket, but I haven't seen any hard evidence. I am on a monophasic pill, Alesse to be specific. I would LOVE some input from VP-- have you had your wisdom teeth removed and are also on a monophasic pill? Did you get dry socket? I'm sure dry socket isn't the end of the world but I can't really afford to take any more time off work or school SO I don't want to extend the healing process.
Thanks for your input :)
