Hi, Using antibiotic and birth control pill in tandem will not affect the effectiveness of the pill. But if you have stopped the birth control pill during the antibiotic usage then it may not provide total contraceptive effect depending on when during the cycle you missed the pill. Extra contraceptive methods may be required to avoid pregnancy.
