Can clindamycin antibiotic (used on face) affect birth control pills?
Okay, so I’m aware that taking clindamycin AS A PILL can decrease the effect of birth control pills. But I use duac (a prescribed skincare remedy) on my face. Duac contains Benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin. I just put it only my face at night and it washes off with my morning skincare.
Birth control pills have always worked for me, even whilst using duac, but I do wonder if that’s just a coincidence and good luck?
Whilst taking birth control (a bit TMI here, be warned) I have noticed thicker discharge and my BF said it was quite thick in consistency too. Birth control prevents pregnancy via thickening vaginal fluid - is this proof that my pills are working?
Either way, this month my bf didn’t actually *** inside me (he was too focused on making me feel good, bless him I love him so much) but I’m aware that pre-*** is almost as risky as ‘normal’ ***.
Maybe I’m just over thinking? Just hoping I’m not pregnant lmao, that’d be gross.
