Can you take doxycycline and loestrin at the same time?

Patient

Q: Can you take doxycycline and loestrin at the same time? My fiance and I are concerned about pregnancy

Symptoms:  Worried about pregnancy
Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Tetracyclines like doxycycline can affect the function of Loestrin by affecting its absorption.
So, better to use additional method of contraception like barrier method(condom) till the completion of doxycycline tablets.

Take care.
