Antibiotics(Ranmoxy) and yasmin


I have been on Yasmin for the past 3 years now. I have a bit of an infection, and my doctor has just prescribed me antibiotics called ''RANMOXY'' to take 3 times a day, for the next 7 days.

I am currently on my period, and on the 3rd placebo pill of my pack today. I know that antibiotics reduce the efficacy of the pill, and would just like to know how long it will be until the pill is effective again?

Many thanks.

Hi there,

I also use Yasmin and I have also been on antibiotics recently.

You have to wait 7 days. Example, I took my last antibiotic on Monday, then I am protected the next Tuesday. If you are on the white pills and you finish your antibiotic, wait until you have taken 7 active pills.

Hope it helps!
