Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
So, just antibiotics of Amoxicillin and you are taking them esssentially during the time you would not be on active pills, correct?
and if this is the case - you do NOT need to worry about getting pregnant.
As you will not ovulate JUST because you are on your pill free day - so you are SAFE and you do not need to worry while taking Amoxicillin
yes i started my anti biotics on my 7 free pill days and i started my period as usual so does this mean i am still protected once i start my new pack of pills shall i take extra precautions for 7 days?
Yes you will still be protected - but to be on the safe side - use condoms for the first 7 days of a new package.
Unlikely you will need the extra protection, but you should use
Do you have any more questions?
thats a relief thankyou
You are welcome
