Is it okay to take ciprofloxacin antibiotic for UTI with Yaz?

Is it okay to take ciprofloxacin antibiotic for UTI with Yaz birth control pills I recently got a UTI and am on the antibiotic Ciprofloxacin. I m suppose to start a new packet of Yaz birth control pills today, so I was wondering if it is safe to take both? I am nineteen years old, about 5 9 and weigh 138 lbs.

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since you have UTI it is necessary to take antibiotic so please continue ciprofloxacin as before .As for the birth control pills there is no reported contraindication or drug interaction which can harm or cause any trouble.So take medicines after having proper meals to avoid hyperacidity or nausea related to the medicines.
Thanks

Hello. I have very irregular menstruation so I have been on Yaz for a few months...At first I was getting my period every 28days or so but last month, I happen to skip it...so I went to the doctor got a blood test and I guess I had prolactonemia...it came out to 62 which is higher than normal...so I was prescribed Parlodel( Bromocriptine ). Is it okay to take yaz and parlodel together or should I stop taking yaz?

i am cipro for a bladder infection....on about the last day i started to feel an odd head pressure from temple to temple...3.5 days after cipro i still had the inf. so am on cipro another 10 days...i still have this head pressure on and off all day....had a headache for 2 days while on the 2nd dose but my period started so not sure if that headache was from that because i get bad headaches every month while on my cycle...but i did have this headache and had nausea and vomiting from it.....i still have about 5 days left of cipr. I am concerned the cipro is causing my head pressure....i have told my dr. about it..she told me to get my eyes checked (because my vision gets funny with the head pressure) and she told me to take a decongestant (i don t have a cold or anything). I am concerned about intracranial hypertension that a freind mentioned to me.

Sex: Male Age:25
On july 28th 2011 I have unprotected sex (anal,viganal, oral) with a working girl. In a few days (3-4days) after having sex I started to feel irritation in urethra and pain in testicles on one side. I visited a doctor he got me tested for "HIV I & II" and "RPR / VDRL" the result came normal (test was done 15days after the exposure). Doctor also gave me Azithromycin 250mg twice daily for 5days. I started to feel better but a few days later similar symptoms started to grow and sharp shooting pain developed which would occur on and off, the pain was basically on the left testical and would shoot upwards on the left side. I visited a doc again he gave me 1g azithromycin single dose and ciprofloxacin (750mg twice for two days )on Aug 17th. Again the things became normal for me for a week and then the pain gradually started again on Aug 26th when i felt the pain was growing i took azithromycin 2g again and i took ciprofloxacin 750mg twice for 1day on aug 30th. and now that still feel mind pain, sometimes shooting i have started to take on sept 9th doxycycline 100mg twice for 7days. I would like to know what the problem could be?.. I also want to mention that there were never a discharge or warts
