Trinessa and acne medication ?

About two years ago, I started taking a pill for acne called minocycline. I was also given trinessa birth control to help get rid up of my acne. My acne had cleared up, my skin is perfect.
My doctor (military) told me that taking minocycline with it decreases the effectiveness of trinessa.
I have been thinking about not taking minocylcine anymore, so trinessa will be more effective.
If I stop taking my minocycline, how long will it take for trinessa birth control to gain effectivness and start working?
