Does antibiotics decrease the effect of fertomid?

I am trying to conceive and my dr prescribed fertomid fertility drugs. I however came down with flu like symptoms a few days ago and he prescribed me antibiotics also. I normally tend to get yeast infections from antibiotics and now I am not sure whether it is a good idea to take the fertility drugs straight after the antibiotics. I am scared that it would affect the effectiveness of the fertility drugs and should I get another yeast infection, would that be a problem?

Dear Jessica Gomes

The use of most antibiotics should not decrease the effect of Fertomid. However some of flu medication may contain non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and theses do prevent ovulation from taking place and may effect the fertility drugs.
