Does Cephalexin affect Birth Control Pills? -
Broad-spectrum antibiotics may reduce the efficacy of combined (progesterone estrogen) oral contraceptives by impairing bacterial flora responsible for recycling of estrogen (ethinylestradiol) in large intestine.
Some people believe that because antibiotics disrupt the normal bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract, they will interfere with the absorption of the birth control pills from your stomach.
Does Cephalexin Affect Pregnancy
Q: I heard that antibiotics interfere with birth control pills, but I’m on the birth control that gets implanted under my skin – will antibiotics interfere with that too? This is one of the bgest medical myths of all time; one that gets propagated in doctors’ offices, health clinics, hospitals, blogs, magazines – and OK fine, student health centers – every day. Now, there are enough women out there who that they have little antibiotic babies running around the house that your health care provider will probably still tell you to use back-up just in case.
But this is not an issue, and even if it were, it wouldn’t apply to birth control methods that don’t involve swallowing pills like the skin patch or the vaginal ring or Implanon.Ceporex, Keflex - Patient
