Ok so I just started on the pill - microgynon 30 - about 3 weeks ago, for the first time ever. On Wednesday I'm supposed to take my break for a week to have my period.
Since Friday though, I've been feeling more and more ill, finding it excruciatingly painful to swallow... and now I have white pustles on my tonsils. So I'm pretty sure I have tonsillitis.
What's the general procedure if I need to start taking antibiotics while I'm in my pill 'break'? How will this affect the absorption of the pill and what precautions will I need to be taking? I'm just really stressing because I've not been in this situation before. The doctor told me what to do if it was during the 3 weeks that I'm on the pill.. but nothing about the break.
Will really appreciate any info!
...for the 2nd time this year
