Exclamation antibiotics and birth control pills??? Help??!!

I have been on Yasmin for 2 months along with taking Doxycycline 100mg once daily. Has anyone ever noticed that these two interfere with each other? I wonder if the Yasmin is trying to clear me up but the antibiotic is weakening it? Has anyone ever had trouble with this? Or has anyone researched it? Please reply.

hi babygirl! the yasmin isn't weakening your doxy, but the doxy can hinder the effect of the yasmin. so, if you get intimate with someone, make sure to use a backup method of birth control. i recommend condoms. strongly. i very strongly recommend using condoms. having an unplanned 6yo myself i know from what i'm talking about here! *lol*

if you are too young to be thinking in those terms, i apologize.
