Cipro Antibiotic And Loestrin Fe
Been taking Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for strep throat and also taking Lo Loestrin Fe. Missed 3 or 4 days of taking Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) and I'm having vaginal bleeding? Normal?
Call your doctor: It is not good to miss doses of your antibiotic when treating strep throat. You risk getting rheumatic heart disease. You must take all 10 days and may have to start again, ask your doctor about it. And an antibiotic can cause irregular periods. If irregularity persists through your next cycle or two, see your doc about this, too. ...Read more

Hi, do antibiotics such as cefuroxime axetil (ceftin) or the "Z-pak" (azithromyacin) affect Ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) birth control's effectiveness??
Rare problem: The whole business about antibiotics interfering with hormonal contraceptives (pills, inserts, etc) is largely an urban myth. It can happen, but is very rare. Neither of these antibiotics taken as usual (a few days to a couple of weeks) is likely to be a problem, I wouldn't worry about it. But if you're nervous, also use condoms while taking them and for a week after the last dose. ...Read more
Natural probiotics: I believe 'natural' probiotics are better than pills. My personal favorite is yogurt - which these days comes in many brands and formulations like yogurt drinks. If you're not a yogurt fan, there is sour cream, (raw) sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha. With cipro, (ciprofloxacin) the major side-effects are nausea, diarrhea, weakness of tendons, and dizziness. If you take yogurt, separate the dose of Cipro (ciprofloxacin) from it. ...Read more
No: Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is an antibiotic, and the current thinking is that it does not decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills. The birth control pills should work with the same high level of effectiveness, with or without Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). ...Read more
I am taking Gianvi(birth control generic for yaz). Will Cipro, (ciprofloxacin) Cephalexin, or a zpack effect my birth control?
Took bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for 7 days while on bc pill (3 days active pills 4 inactive pills). Finished bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) exactly 7 days ago. Am I protected now?
Always protected: A woman who is properly taking her birth control pills, and is beyond her first pack of pills, has contraceptive protection ALL the time, regardless of where she is in her pill pack. Adding condoms helps prevent diseases, and may decrease vaginal odor or discharge (by not having disintegrating sperm/semen hang around inside her vagina). Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) itself should not affect BC pills effectiveness. ...Read more
I am taking Gildess fe BC pill and I finished taking a week dosage of sulfamethoxazole and phenazophyride for UTI. Will this decrease BC efficiency?
Possible: Safest to use a backup method for the rest of this pack. ...Read more
Can i take quinolone or ciprofloxacin for UTI while i'm on yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?
Yes: Any antibiotic can cause absorption issues with ocp's and render them ineffective. One should always ask about medications use with ocp's and the medication's effect on the ocp. If in doubt, use a back up method (comdon, foam, film etc) and talk to your pcp/gyn about it. Don't risk it! the price may be too high to pay! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
