Does taking Augmentin lower the effeciency of Yaz? I know that most antiobiotics do, but just wanted to check?

Thank you

Hallo Keren
I am always very careful with antibiotics and the contraceptive pill as it can cause reduced absorbtion of the hormone. It is always better to use condoms additionally until the next menstruation.
