Pill and antibiotics

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Right i dont know if this is gonna make sense, but ive been taking antibiotics for 7 days for a gum infection, I didnt have sex during these 7 days in case it stopped the pill from working.I came of the antibiotics yesterday and today is the start of my pill free week. So do i carry on not taking the pill like usual during the 7 day break, or run 2 packs together? If i run 2 packs together it will mean i will be due on my period when i go on holiday, which i dont want so i'll have to run 3 packs together?

    You need expert advice on this one - speak to your GP or a family planning clinic/Brook advisory.

    When i was on antibotics all they said was to not be unprotected during taking them but to be sure either run the second packet or don't for 7 days!
