Can i take antibiotics for urine infection while on Yasmin ?

I am 16. I am on Yasmin 28 pills . The next 7 days are the dummy pills. I have a urine infection and started antibiotics yesterday. Have to take 2 pills/day for 5 days. Macrobid 100mg. Nitrofurantoin 100 mg. How will this affect the pill and if so do I need to use another method and for how long ?
