Be sure to alert your doctor if you are having any vomiting and/or diarrhea as this too can impact how well estradiol works. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist to determine if you should use an alternative or additional form of birth control during or after treatment with ampicillin. If you are using estradiol for another purpose, speak with your doctor if you have any questions or notice any changes in how well estradiol is working.
