When I was on the pill, my dr always told me to use alternate forms of protection because antibiotics can override the effects of birth control. I don't know what the percentage is, but you should definately be more careful when on antibiotics.

The percentage of women who get pregnant while on antibiotics is extrmemly small. I think the normal rate for pregnancy on BC is 1 in 100 and if you add AB to the equation, it becomes something like 3 or 4 in 100. I checked on this sometime ago with my doctor.

FYI ... http://www.bchealthguide.org/healthfiles/hfile38d.stm ... a list of anitibiotics that are in this category. E, glad to have you answering questions - stick around. The rate for pregnancy while on bc pills is 1% if used exactly as prescribed, but rises to 8% as used by the general population (forgetful)
