The pill and antibiotics
I am currently on Yaz and started drinking a course of antibiotics on Friday due to a throat infection / flu. I finish the course of antibiotics on Wednesday morning. When will it be safe for me and my boyfriend to have sex again? How long does antibiotics effect the working of contraception before it is safe to have intercourse? Thank you!

You are not safe for 2 weeks after the finish of the antibiotics.
