... antibiotic, I am sexually active, so I would like to know how this is going to effect my risk of pregnancy and my over all birth control effectiveness?
Certain antibiotics can reduce the effectiveness of hormonal birth control pills so you should use condoms as back up the whole time you are on an antibiotic and for at least 7 days AFTER you finish the antibiotic or you could become pregnant. Some women will even find that they have breakthrough bleeding while on antibiotics.
