How likely is it to get pregnant on axithromicin and birth control. Is that an antibiotic that affects birth control?
Not really: I never make guarantees, but your chances of a problem are extremely low. Although some antibiotics can reduce the efficacy of birth control, Azithromycin isn't one of the known offenders. It's never a bad idea to use a back up method when you are on antibiotics, but I wouldn't be worried. If your period doesn't come on time, take a pregnancy test to be sure. ...Read more
Depends: If the Mirena (levonorgestrel) device is in place and not expelled the risk of pregnancy while on antibiotic is very low. Always check after menstrual period to make certain that the threads still protrude from the cervix/do not to pull on the threads as doing so may displace the intrauterine system. Report any prolonged bleeding/ fever/chills, abdominal pain/cramps to doctor. Practice safe sex use condoms. Take care. ...Read more
I'm taking tetralysal antibiotic for my acne and I'm not taking any pills is it possible to get pregnant while taking tetralysal antibiotic?
Not likely: Dont guess. Take a test. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
I'm on the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD and taking an antibiotic (Sulfamethoxazole). Can I get pregnant?
Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD: No the antibiotics will not decrease the effectiveness of the Mirena (levonorgestrel). But like any contraceptive method, the IUD does have a low baseline rate of pregnancy. So yes you may get pregnant (very low risk) but if you do, it won't be because of the antibiotics. ...Read more

Can I still get pregnant if I took plan b tues morning (11 am) and then took Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) antibiotic Thurs.(7 pm)?
Yes you can: If you're ovulating & having relations with a fertile male then, pregnancy's ALWAYS POSSIBLE no matter if you're on Plan C-Z. Nothing is 100% geared against pregnancy except living on Mars right now with a bunch of Dr. Seuss's Sneetches. BUT, even that will change in the 2035 so beware (2018 if the Inspiration Mars crew discovers there's a Starbucks on the surface as they boomerang around Mars)! ...Read more

I am pregnant. I have been on a five day antibiotic course, and in that time my flu symptoms have worsened. Im now coughing up green slime with a raw throat. No more fever, but other symptoms are all worse. What can i do to get better?
I think I am starting to get a sore throat. Should I get an antibiotic or is it likely a virus? My wife is pregnant and I don't want it to affect her.
Take precaution: At least 90% of our so-called sore throats are due to viruses. The incubation period is few days such that by the time symptoms are felt, it has been passed on. Nevertheless, if fever, chills or more symptoms occur see your doctor. Furthermore, it always is best to protect others from exposure if they have not had it yet and that is why we suggest flu shots for the flu. ...Read more

Trying to conceive, but husband is taking antibiotics amoxycilin and dicloxacillin 250mg each. Will it affect sperms or pose prblms if I get pregnt?
Probably not...: What I have known and what I have reviewed and read failed to reveal any mention of their possible effect on spermatogenesis — sperm formation. So, I would say both have no concern on sperms. However, in reality, behind what we have known always still hides a lot of what we don't know. If still in doubt, ask his prescribing doctor. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. No, you are much less likely to get pregnant if you have sex during your period. Sperm can live up to five days in a woman's body. If a woman ovulated shortly after her period, any sperm that were alive and motile from when she had intercourse, could lead to pregnancy. If you are taking certain antibiotics with birth control pills, you may need to use back up birthcontrol during that time and up to a week later to prevent pregnancy. ...Read more
