Antibiotics and the pill

How long does it effect your pill? I've finished the course and I'm now on 7 day break (AF is here) will it effect me still when I start taking my pill Tuesday?

I was always told a week after finishing antibiotics but don't know whether it's the same for all types of pill

It depends on which pill and which antibiotic.

If you have any doubts about whether contraceptive effect would have been affected, I suggest you follow the guidelines as if it has been affected, and then see if you can speak to a family planning nurse tomorrow.
