I have been on nortrel for 2 years and I had to take augmentin for 10 days... I didnt have sex while taking the amtibiotic but I got my period after I finished the antibiotic and then I was only on the new active pills for 5 days before I had sex, but I used a condom too. Chances of pregnancy?
Antibiotics do reduce the effectiveness of oral birth control pills so you have to use condoms for back up if you have sex for the entire time you are taking the antibiotics and for seven days after you have taken all the antibiotics. If you used a condom, then you are safe! :)
