Hi there,
I began taking Augmentin (3x day) on Saturday the 12th and have finished my dosage as of yesterday, the 19th, a full week of treatment. I finished my pack of Ocella Sunday the 13th and began my period Wednesday, the 16th, and am to begin a new pack tonight, Sunday the 20th. I have heard, as most of us have, that certain antibiotics can interfere with birth control. I've heard one needs to use back up while on the antibiotic, but also I've heard using back up until your next period following the course of the antibiotic. Seeing as I was on my period during the course of my Augmentin treatment, do I need to continue using a condom and if so, until when? Thank you!
