    Sorry, mini-thread hijack:

    Hiii, peanut! Hiii, researchasaurus!

    *waves madly*

    People are asking about you both on the Supernaturale glitter boards, BTW

    OK, end hijack.

    I knew this factoid before going on the pill, but I think my mom told me first. She was big on accurate info, and knew way too many women who got preggers whilst taking antibiotics.

    Asking about us on the other board? Really?

    I wish I wasn't so damn busy...every weekend is booked all the way through Halloween right now or else I'd like to plan something.

    I even have to go to Des Moines for a conference. Anybody ever been there?

    Anyway, hi!

    Actually, maybe the real question should be where have you been?

    Hiiiii! *waves like a grinnin' idiot!*

    Well, after the craziness with the tr*llage on the prev. board, I gave myself a self-imposed glitter hiatus, until I learned how to deal with tr*lls.

    As in, step 1, ignore. Step 2, ignore. :)

    And, I'm glad to be back!

    Wait, this has nothing to do with b/c and antibiotics, does it?

    Sorry, back to the thread. :)

    yeah, right, so birthcontrol and antibiotics don't mix, just like uh....

    anyway, cool to hear from you! let's all get together when we've got a free moment--or maybe we should hit renegade craft fair together?

    My pharmacist is always (almost hilariously) vigilant about pointing this out to me. Then again, she's always vigilant about any conflicts. I've been on antibiotics quite a bit lately and she always leans in and says, "And remember, antibiotics can reduce the effectiveness of the birth control pill, so use another contraceptive method."

    Maybe it's more of a problem if you don't get all your prescriptions in one place?

    I had tonsilitis recently, so I had to go on antibiotics. My doctor went "You know your antibiotics will interfere with your birth control, RIIIIGHT?" and I went "Oh, ok." and she went "Don't forget to use a CONNNNDOMMMMMM."

    I recall reading a warning about antibiotics interfering with BC in the little instructions pack. I was on antibiotics a couple of months ago and now the pharmacy puts a little sticker to warn those taking BC pills that they may not be as effective.

    yeeeeeah. i'm a nursing student (almost effing done) right now.
    antibiotics weaken BC, as does grapefruits juice.

    also, just a heads up- if you continuously take your BC pills like me to forego the whole period thing (D.I.Y. seasonale, heh), you really should have "monophasic" pills, a.k.a. pills that are all the same color. according to sue from "talk sex...", having the triphasic pills and trying to the skipped periods thing could get you preggo.
