antibiotics do decrease the effectiveness of the plan b and also of birth control pills. you might not get your period on time because the spotting. and the alcohol probably did a number to the doxy if it didnt wipe it out. i would wait till the 7th to see if you get your period and if not take a test.
If you're experiencing stomach aches then it may mean you have not eaten enough food to take it with (if I took it on an empty stomach I would start to feel sick). Also keep in mind that Yaz is a birth control pill so the hormones may be the thing causing the side effects and not the doxycycline.
While I am fine with using a second method as a precaution while on antobiotics, no one has mentioned a withdrawal time. I have been on doxycycline for about 1 month. How long until my birth control pills are sure to be as effective as normal? Thanks.
I took 100mg of minocycline twice a day for 4 days( I stopped due to side effects) im on birth control and had sex without a condom about 13 days after taking minocycline. Should I take plan b just to be safe ?
If you do have a clinic or she could see a Dr she can get on some form of birth control. Using a condom every single time you have sex and also with your girlfriend being on birth control it's pretty much 100% guarantee that she will not get pregnant. This is if she is not already pregnant.
One time, one freaking time, I was actually taking Doxycycline which messed with my birth control pills, and after that one time, I got pregnant. I wasn't in a position to have a baby, and I feel completely horrible, but I had an abortion. I didn't tell anyone except my best guy friend. It was the only time I haven't used a condom and it was with a high school friend. At least you had the courage to get tested. I can't bring myself to do it.
I did not know at the time that this anti-biotic can interfere with your birth control. I had unprotected sex with my husband during this time. Now still using that patch, when I went to change the patch to the next one I guess I did not stick it good enough because it came off and then a day later my period began. Is there any chance that I could have gotten pregnant. I know that I have my period now but I am unsure of what happens when doxycline interfers with yoru birth control.
As far as birth control goes, when I was initially diagnosed with PTC the neurologist immediately took me off my birth control. I was taking Yasmin birth control at the time. I talked to my neurologist about getting put back on the birth control and he didn't say not to take it. He just told me to make sure that I am listening to my body and if there was any indication that the birth control was triggering it, then to stop taking it.

I have been taking Doxycycline for over 2 years. I am also on birth control Minastrin 24 Fe.

Should I stop taking my Doxycycline because I haven't had a flare up in over a year?
took no birth control, but continued the tramadol. Nausea just as extreme, if not more so. Could not keep even water in my system. April 18: Decided that a week of nausea without taking birth control meant that the nausea also came from the tramadol? Stopped taking tramadol, cold turkey, even though you are supposed to taper the dose. April 18- 26: worse nausea than any previous time. Additionally tramadol withdrawel effects of diareha, shaking, tremors, etc.
I took doxycycline for 14 days while on birth control. I started to spot so I stopped the doxycycline and continued the birth control. I started bleeding dark brown with what looked like tissue in it and now it has turned more red and is more like a regular period even though I am not supposed to start my period for 2 more days. Could this be because of the doxcycline or could it be an STD like chlamydia??
Hi there, Antibiotics don't affect Depo-Provera birth control like they do with other forms of birth control. You can safely take the antibiotics as advised. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. For more queries and assistance visit a gynecologist.I sincerely hope it helps. Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
After two doses of the medication, I now have increased abdominal pain and my vagina has started bleeding. I take birth control, so bleeding between periods is very unusual for me.

Hello, Adoxa (or Doxycycline) can make the birth control pill less effective, thus, using a backup form of contraception is recommended. This could be the cause of your irregular bleeding. You should talk to your ob/gyn about this issue. Best regards, Dr.
Hi, Certain antibiotics can cause birth control pills to be less effective, but I would think you'd have to be taking the antibiotics for a few days for this to happen. Just to be on the safe side I would call the pharmacist just to be sure which antibiotics can interact with birth control pills, and also ask how many doses you have to have taken for this to happen as well. Good luck to you.

I recommend you see your gynecologist for an examination. Can I ask if you're on birth control? Sometimes that can cause unusual periods and pain.
A topical synthetic retinoid like Retin-A or Differin may also be useful. Your choice of birth control may affect your skin. Avoid the progesterone-only mini pill, the depot shot or hormonal IUD, which can all worsen your skin. Talk to your doctor about a combined pill which is not based on testosterone, like Yasmin or Diane35. Eloise.

So I'm wondering if these past three years I've been in a type of lupus flare up because of stress, which made my heart rate go up, and perhaps I needed to be on a higher dosage of Plaquinel. And I really wonder if the doxycycline was what spurred on the really fast heart rate, as I was taking it when all these symptoms started to occur.
