Antibiotics

Hello

This might be a silly question, bur right now im on antibiotics due to a bad flu, does this mean that my antibiotics cancell out my pill, and therefore it is not recommended to have sex without protection?

Your help in this matter will be highly appreciated..

Thanks
Keri

Certain anti biotics do cancel out the pill but you need to find out which ones in particular. Maybe phone the pharmacy and find out but the doctor should have told you if your medication would affect the pill..... unless he doesnt know that youre on it.
