3+d but wait!: Solodyn is a brand of minocycline which has a half-life of 15.5hrs. It takes at least 5 half-lives to get something out of your body so we're looking at ~80hrs or 3+d. However, before you forego contraception, start taking prenatal vitamin so that you have enough Folate (folic acid) to lower risk of neural tube defects. Better yet, go see your Family Doc or Ob for preconception counseling.
