Our expert says:
This is a tricky question. It is thought that with longterm antibiotic use the risk of intereference with the Pill lessens. The recommendation is as follows :
Antibiotic courses exceeding 2 weeks allow gut bacteria to develop antibiotic resistance. Extra contraception precautions need to be continued
only for the first 2 weeks and an additional 7 days (3 weeks in total) with elimination of the next pill-free interval. Should the first 2 weeks of antibiotic use extend into the last 7 days of the pack, eliminate the next pill-free interval as well.
