Biotin and Yaz

Apologies if this has been asked already, I did not see it though!

So, recently went in to get my hair done in a partial foil (my second time), bleach is evil and had to cut off 2 1/2 inches, blah blah blah. (Sorry, I know this isn't a hair community! :p) In addition to using proper treatments and having the real damaged parts cut out, I wanted to start taking biotin to see if it would improve my hair growth/time it takes to regrow even slightly. (If not, no real harm or foul...just an experiment.)

And here is where I need you, lovely VPers! I'm currently taking beyaz (yaz, but with folic acid supplements for your nonhormonal days is how my gyno explained it to me. It was just the sample she gave, so I'm hoping when I switch to real yaz there will be no difference-but I digress!) and was slightly worried biotin might affect my birth control's effectivness in some way?

A quick internet research adventure seemed to show me that no, taking biotin/vitamin B supplements is okay and even good for women on HBC, but I wanted to get advice straight from some superstar VPers-maybe someone has been in the exact same situation? And I trust this comm. much more than I could ever trust, say, yahoo answers. If I'm being paranoid I apologize, but hey, better safe than sorry, right? I know stuff with saint john's wart, or antibiotics can totally mess with HBC. 

Much love!
