Patient :I have been on birth control (the pill) for about 3 months now, i got a UTI and had to take an antibiotic for about a week. I was told to use an extra source of protection for a month before relying on my birth control again. It has been a month and a half but the reason i worry about going unprotected is because i had my period (very light) for about a month off and on, so i just had my placebo week and had a normal period. Is it safe for me to rely on my birth control now?
