Question: Depo Provera and Cephalexin

 heather4487 - Mon Apr 26, 2004 8:03 pm

Hi, I got my first Depo provera injection almost three months ago. ( I'm due for my next shot May 17th) I recent;y got my eyebrow pierced and then badly infected. For the infection my doctor gave me 500 mg Cephalexin. He failed to inform me that antibiotics can have an effect on birth control. I've had sex since taking the antibiotics with out a condom, should I be concerned? Thanks.
