Antibiaotics for acne and birth control?

I am on seasonale and I am also on apo minocycline for acne. Will this effect the reliability of the pill? I really dont want to get pregnant because I just had a baby 3 months ago. I dont have a problem using condoms but my bf cant finish when we use one.

  • Most antibiotics interfere with BC pills. If you can't get a hold of your doc, the pharmacist will have this info.

    Perhaps non-baby-making sexual activities are best right now?
