If it's only going to be two weeks that you are going to have to worry about it, would it be possible to focus on non-penetrative types of sex if you find condoms such a problem?
We could do, but it's good to have them on hand anyways :)
Out of curiosity, what is the antibiotic? Because new guidelines were released a while ago that say that most antibiotics actually have no effect on hormonal contraceptives and there is no need to use additional methods of contraception. There are only a couple of exceptions, but a lot of pharmacists etc are still telling people that they need to take extra precautions for every antibiotic. If you're taking rifampicin or rifabutin then def use condoms, but if it's anything other than that then you don't need to, even if your pharmacist is still telling women otherwise.
And if my word isn't good enough then see the NHS info below :)
I'm on Metronidazole, checked the rifampicin mentioned in the article and no mention of it so we should be ok then! Woo!
I think we'll definately have to try out some Pesante king side or Trojen Magnums though, incase we need to use them again. Now I've got a draw full of too small ones to get rid of!
