Is it safe to take birth control while taking antibiotics?

Yes, but: Most antibiotics and many other medications lower the effectiveness of birth control pills, so it is safest to also use condoms as well.

A 20-year-old female asked:

I had UTI and while I was getting treated I was bleeding a lot, like a normal period, but is that normal? I had my period a week before I had uti.

No: Treating a UTI should not cause vaginal bleeding. Sometimes a UTI can cause some blood in your urine but it is usually not heavy. It is possible the symptoms felt like a UTI but were from some other cause.

A 29-year-old female asked:

What would cause my son's ear to bleed slightly after having swimmers ear?

Specializes in Pediatrics
Inflammation: Is the cause of swimmers ear. The skin gets wet and boggy and inflamed and it could bleed from that or if he picks it at all it could bleed. If he had a middle ear infection as well and the eardrum perforated it could bleed. None of these are terrible problems. If you are concerned it is always a good idea to have it checked out.

Looks worse : Initially, injuries to the nose may swell and bruise. Most physicians recommend waiting approx 7 days and reevaluating. If the nose still looks swollen or crooked then you should see an ent. If it looks much better then you are safe to observe.

Doubtful: Group b strep infection in newborn, typically acquired from colonized birth canal, can be serious. Pregnant mother should receive penicillin. Don't fool around. Garlic used to be hung around the neck to ward off bad germs & spirit in the medieval era.
