Does the birth control ring interact with any medications?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 11/04/2019

Yes. Antibiotics from the rifampicin group interact with the effects of the vaginal ring.

However, analgesics, anti-inflammatories or common antibiotics such as amoxicillin do not decrease the effectiveness of the contraceptive ring.
