Does taking steroids affect birth control?

Steroids do not have a proven impact on birth control. However, similar to antibiotics, it is not said to be safe anymore. A woman on steroids should always use an additional protection, such as a condom, for at least 2 weeks. She should also continue taking the birth control like usual. Sometimes doctors say, because it is not proven, not to worry. But think of the consequences of being the one. Doctors are very precautious and strongly recommend not to trust birth control while being on any kind of steroid and antibiotic, it does impact the protection.
