Important question

Patient : Hi not sure which area this should have gone to...... but i am just getting over a uti and i am nitrfurantoin antibiotics. i know they effect the pill. my question is if i am on antibiotics whilst i am on my pill break which i am, how does this effect my pill cycle??? like if i start taking my pill again the same day i finish my antibiotics should my next cycle be effected or since i wasnt taking the pill at the time there was nothing for the biotic to effect??? also does that mean i am covered now? whilst on my break and on antibiotic??? thanks so much for any info
