Check with your doctor as to the effectiveness of your birth control when used in conjunction with other medications. Reduced effectiveness may be seen in some cases.

Can birth control be ineffective while taking metronidazole?

If you have your period, using metronidazole gel may not be particularly effective. Contact your health care provider for advice about alternative treatment. If you don't have your period, the metronidazole isn't going to have enough volume/moisture to make tampon use comfortable or advisable. If you're taking oral metronidazole, there's no reason you can't use a tampon.

Talk with your health care provider for advice specific to your situation.

No, birth control is intended to prevent pregnancy. You can become pregnant while on birth control, as no method is 100% effective, but it isn't the birth control that makes you pregnant.
