Good question! Yes, still take your birth control pills like you normally would just remember that the Pill is not as effetive while you are on antibiotics so you need to use a back up method like a condom during the time you are on the antibiotic and at least a week after you finish the last antibiotic pill or you could become pregnant. Dont be surprised to see some breakthrough spotting while you are on the antibiotic-this is not unusual.
