If your a woman on birth control and are going to get an extraction or oral surgery; stop taking your birth control or plan your surgery when your on a low dose birth control cycle (Maybe even that time of the month, which would be brutal, lol but it is a lot better than a dry socket). What happens is it can dislodge the blood clot or keep it from even forming which is how you will heal. It has to do with the estrogen in the birth control pill.
Hope this helps

So I am on birth control, I did it at that time of the month. Not only was it brutal because I had my period and I'm mre sensitive to pain, but I got dry socket anyways. I think your advice is useless.
Best to be off birth control altogether or be ready to deal with dry socket. Mine is particularly bad.
