I just started my new pack of Ortho Tri Cyclen. I took my third pill today (Tues.) Today I was prescribed Cipro for a UTI. It is a three day supply of 500mg twice a day. I asked my doctor if it interferes with my birth control and she said it shouldn't. My pharmacist said that it may. I am confused. Could you weigh in on if you think it does compromise the effectiveness of the birth control pill and if it does how long after I finish the cipro do I need to use backup or abstain from sex?
Thanks so much for your advice
