Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
You need to confirm your pregnancy first with the help of a pregcolor card before taking any medicine to discontinue your pregnancy further. The metabolism of oral pills is increased with doxycycline and contraception failure may occur.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Ifyou did not want pregnancy you should have taken contraception from start to avoid pregnancy.There is interaction between Doxycycline and contraceptive pills and the contraceptive effect is increased.So if you have missed your periods you will have to get urine pregnancy test done and even if you are pregnant and have taken Doxycycline you will have to consult a Gynaec for opinion and may require abortion as it is contraindiated in pregnancy.So if you miss periods do a pregnancy test and consult a Gynaec.
Thanks

Hello,
First and foremost get a Urine Pregnancy test done to confirm if you are pregnant or not (Kits are available at medical stores) . If you are pregnant and do not want to continue with the pregnancy, visit a gynecologist at the earliest who would suggest you the best possible method of terminating the pregnancy . Contraceptives are meant to prevent pregnancy and not for abortion.
PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ANY MEDICINES WITHOUT THE DOCTORS ADVISE.

Hi
Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, you had sex during fruitful period so there is much chance of getting pregnant. so check it n consult your doc. if you do not want to carry it then consult about MTP.
you take doxycyclin n contraceptive toghter, doxy impair the effect of hormonal contraceptive so it cant work. you should take any drug as per advise your doc after seeing all effect n side effects. there is many good alternate of doxy present.
