  2. Dear Ursula23,

    Indeed, certain antibiotics can compromise the effectiveness of emergency contraception or the morning after pill. However, not every antibiotic affects the accuracy. My advice is that you talk to your GP about the effect of the morning after pill on the medication you’re taking. Mixing drugs can cause adverse side effects and it is best to seek professional help.

    I hope this helps,

    Best
