Antibiotics(Ranmoxy) and yasmin
Hi,

I have been on Yasmin for the past 3 years now. I have a bit of an infection, and my doctor has just prescribed me antibiotics called ''RANMOXY'' to take 3 times a day, for the next 7 days.

I am currently on my period, and on the 3rd placebo pill of my pack today. I know that antibiotics reduce the efficacy of the pill, and would just like to know how long it will be until the pill is effective again?

Many thanks.
