Probably, but the diet pills are likely either useless or dangerous. Unless they've been prescribed to you by a doctor, you shouldn't be taking them.

And what does this have to do with relationships?

Some herbal supplements can interact with birth control pills and reduce their effectiveness, so yes, there is a possibility of that.

But as Milke says, you really shouldn't be taking diet pills of any kind unless they've been prescribed by a doctor. If they were, then you need to ask that doctor whether they could interact with the birth control pills.
