So, I started taking antibiotics on Monday. I know that they can mess with the effectiveness of the pill. However, I spoke with two pharmacists and my doctor and they both said that this particular antibiotic would not effect it. I'm still a little concerned. I had sex the day before starting the antibiotics, could I be at risk for pregnancy?
According to this article ( https://www.drugs.com/article/antibiotics-and-birth-control.html ) most antibiotics should be OK. Only one antibiotic - rifampin (Rifadin) - has been proven to make birth control less effective.
