Contraceptive pill and antibiotic watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    Hey all,
    I wanted to know how long you have to wait until the pill starts being affective again after taking antibiotics for seven days. My pill is Elyfem 20 and on the notice it says 28 days but everywhere I've looked it up it says 7.

    Thanks for our help.
