Anyone know?

I know that abx reduce the effectivness of combination pills.. what about the Mini Pill?

I'm on 14 days of abx for a sinus infection.. I forgot to ask about how it impacts the MP..

Says there is no indication of broad spectrum abx intereacting with the pill.. Other sites say differently..

anyone know? I plan on being cautious.. After stopping the abx, how long until I can stop using a back up method? We are headed for some time away in 10 days and I want to know what to pack..
