i just took my minigynon birth control pill 12 hours too early. I always take them like every 7:30pm but as i woke up just now, i took it at 7:30am along with my antibiotic fungal pill(sporasec) which i should take every 12 hours but its only the birth control i took incorrect and i took it on empty stomach again. Will this affect me in any way?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Taking 1 pill out of time usually will not affect the efficacy of the birth control pills. Continue to take them as instructed. Be careful and take them at around the same time every day without missing them. Since you are on other medication (antibiotic/antifungal) along with the birth control, consider using back-up form of contraception (condom/spermicide) if having intercourse to remain protected against pregnancy. Use of other medications along with birth control pills can lower their efficacy.
Take care.
