Pill and antibiotics

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hey,

I'm currently on antibiotics. I was informed that they would mess with the pill so to use condoms whilst on the antibiotics and for 7 days after the course finished.

The last day of antibiotics is 6 days before my weeks break. Does this mean I wont be protected fully by the pill until a week after my week off-'period'? As in it wont have been 7 days of taking the pill after my antibiotics...

Cheers for the help in advance!

    When I was on antibiotics I had to take my next pill pack back-to-back, just to be on the safe side. I'm not really sure if you'll be the same, but if you go on the nhs website, or netdoctor, or something similar they'll have a big list of what do in different situations with the pill :) Or give your doctor a ring, they may be able to tell you over the phone.
