I finished Amoxicillin/Clavulanate 875mg/125mg sunday morning and monday morning i took levonelle step one emergency pill. Does the pill work?
Probably: Emergency contraceptives are not 100% effective even without being on antibiotics, and it is thought that antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness even further. However, it is not know how significant that decrease is. I would suggest you check a pregnancy test in a couple weeks regardless. And if you are taking antibiotics, use a condom or diaphragm for protection instead of hormonal pills ...Read more
Depends: It depends on two main factors. One is the type of pill and the other is the stage of your menstrual cycle. Fir combination pills, if you start it with the first 5 days of the start of your menstrual cycle, you should be safe, and would need a secondary protection like condom or a diaphragm if started the pill later. Fir progesterone only pill, you need 48 hrs for those to be effective. Be safe:) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
