I don't know about Prednisone, but antibiotics lowers the

effectiveness of birth control pills. It is much easier to get

pregnant on the pill if you are taking antibioitics. You need to

use a back up method for sex while taking antibiotics. I'm not sure

about Prednisone, but you should talk to your doctor and find out

what effect it has on birth control.
