I was given this antibiotic by my dentist. I have had my period the entire time I was on it (day 5) Today (thursday) was my LAST antibiotic pill. My period ends tomorrow FRIDAY and I start my new pill pack on Sunday. I have been on the pill for 20 years. The lowest dose brevicon 0.5/35. WHEN I start my new pill pack on Sunday do I need back up Birth Control? If so for how long? Sunday will be day 3 with NO antibiotic.
ALSO please PLEASE can someone PLEASE educate the dentists about birth control and antibiotics!! I know several women who have gotten pregnant this way!
