for those who take birth control pills...

do you use a backup birth control when you have to take antibotics?

have you ever gotten pregnant while on the pill and antibotics at the same time?

i've NEVER used any other form of birth control while i've had to take antibotics over the years (which is often due to frequent sinus infections). and i've never gotten pregnant.

so i'm just curious what others do.

  • condoms. And just because you didn't get pregnant, doesn't mean you won't.

  • you could try a neti pot for your sinuses, and possibly avoid antibiotics all together. for your overall health you may want to get a probiotic too!

    good luck not getting pregnant!
