Do antibiotics affect birth control, specifically IUDs? I'm on Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and have a Mirena IUD.
Not to worry: All IUDs prevent pregnancy, and antibiotics don't interfere with them. Mirena (levonorgestrel) combines the usual action of an IUD with the hormonal effects of the progesterone-type drug included with it. A few antibiotics can affect the hormone's effectiveness, but most won't, including ciprofloxacin. ...Read more

Ir also causes up-regulation of several clotting factors, like fibrinogen and pai-1, the inhibitor of tpa (alteplase).

DX PID in Er. Had US and Pap. Pap normal, negative for std/sti. Confused about other possible causes, or was this incorrect dx? No hx endometriosis
Possibly Wrong DX: I find that ERs over diagnose women who present with pelvic pain and/or vaginal discharge with PID. It would help to have more information, including symptoms you had. I assume they Rxd antibiotics , and your US was normal. They likely tested you for GC/Chlamydia, which are the most common causes of PID, but not the only pathogens that can cause it. If no better see gyn specialist. Take Care. ...Read more

My wife dr installed mirena (levonorgestrel) to prevent uterine cancer. We do not believe in abortion but are ok with birth control. Does mirena (levonorgestrel) cause abortions?
Probably: One mechanism of action for the Mirena (levonorgestrel) (and there are several) is the thinning of the endometrium. That makes the lining of the uterus less receptive to implantation of a fertilized egg. When a conception does occur, most of the time that fertilized egg will not implant and the pregnancy will not be established - this results in the Mirena (levonorgestrel) being an abortifacient at least part of the time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
