I was prescribed cipro on a Wed and was on the last week of my active pills in an ortho-tri-cyclin birth control back. I had sex on that saturday night and took plan b the next morning I then had sex again a few hours later. my period is very regular and I was supossed to get it that following Wed (so I week after being prescribed the cipro) my period is a day late. Can Cipro make the Plan B pill ineffective? and was a still covered if I had sex after I took the Plan B pill?

Do not take ciprofloxacin with dairy products such as milk or yogurt, or with calcium-fortified juice. You may eat or drink dairy products or calcium-fortified juice with a regular meal, but do not use them alone when taking ciprofloxacin. They could make the medication less effective. Certain medications should be taken at least 2 hours after or 6 hours before you take ciprofloxacin. This includes didanosine (Videx) chewable/buffered tablets or powder; sucralfate (Carafate); antacids that contain calcium, magnesium or aluminum (such as Tums or Rolaids); or vitamin or mineral supplements that contain calcium, iron, or zinc.
