Hi Doc

I''m getting married in two weeks time. I''m already on Minesse, but had a really bad upper respiratory infection last week and the doctor gave me Augmentin SR. I''m unsure of how long antibiotics cancels out the pil? I''m starting on my inactive pills today (have my period on Tuesday?).

I heard that it only takes 7days for your pill to be effective again. Is this true?

Please help as I cannot afford to have a honeymoon baby.

Thanks so much :)

To be safe, do not have unprotected sex for one month.
