I would consider it safe to use another form of Birth Control along with the pill as long as it didn't contain hormones as the pill does. You don't want to put too many different hormones in your body. If you can buy it at a store without a prescription from a doctor, it's probably safe to take with the pill. But read the package just to be safe. It will say on the package not to take with the pill if it isn't safe.
