I wanted to know...

I wanted to know is there a bad interaction when taking an antibiotic such as flagyl with a birth control method like Mibelas 24 Fe?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Increased appetite and nausea

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have pcos which is why I'm taking the birth control and ever since I had a LEEP I have been having recurrent BV.

Ok thank you I'll be waiting.

Yes, the flagyl will decrease the potency of your birth control

I would use backup contraception (condoms) if needed until you are off the flagyl for one week

let me know if you have other questions.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
