Can minocycline and levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) be taken simultaneously? Will the effects lessen if I am taking both?

Antibiotics and bcp. Birth control pills can be affected by some antibiotics, but the effect is to lessen their absorption, so if you are not bleeding/spotting your bcp's are still effective and can be taken along with Minocin (minocycline) (a tetracycline). If you are spotting, the pill may statistically be less effective, but the odds on pregnancy are still very low.

I normally take my levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) at night, however yesterday I accidentally took it at 5pm. Today I meant to take it at 530 but forgot until 8pm. Am I cover?

Still Protected... You will feel best if you take the pill around the same time every day; however, if you are off by a few hours you are still protected as long as you take 1 pill a day. Best wishes! Read more...
