I've heard that antibiotics lower the effectiveness of birth control pills. Is this true? My wife is on a 91 day birth control pill(seasonale) but she was taking antibiotic meds and we got into it and didn't take extra care unfortunately. She's in week 10 of her pills and just wanted to know if we should be concerned and should look into gettin Plan B or something of that sort.

I would ask this question to a pharmacist, preferably the one she received the prescriptions from. There are some antibiotics that do interfer, but I can't tell you which specific ones they are.
