Wether : Wether or not antibiotics interacts with birth control pills is controversial. I highly doubt that one antibiotic pill will interfere with your birth control. Some doctors tell their patients to use a back up method while on antibiotics and others do not. As long as you take your pill everyday around the same time you should be safe.
Best of luck.
