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
