    How long do antibiotics affect birth control?

    #65752 Reply


    Most antibiotics do not affect the effectiveness of birth control pills. But rifampin, griseofulvin might cut the action of your pills as these medications increase the break-down of estrogens. As a result, the rates of estrogens and the effectiveness of the pills are reduced. Therefore, antibiotics can kill the bacteria that re-activate estrogen in the intestines.

    To prevent unwanted pregnancies talk to your GP and ask about the possible interactions. It is also recommended to use a second reliable method of birth control during antibiotic therapy.
