No interaction

Prednisone treats quite a few conditions and also interacts with quite a few medications, but fortunately not so much with birth control pills, in general. Unfortunately, unexpected reaction can occur with any med or combination of meds, thus always use with caution. Use smallest effective dose for shortest duration possible. Consult doc. Good luck

I was on prednisone & levquin for 7 days while also taking birth control. Hubby and I had sex a few times during that week. Should i be concerned?

No.

Prednisone
Your being on the pill almost certainly negates pregnancy risk, but in the future negate all chances with barrier protection if you are on meds that can cause fetal harm!
