How long will my antibiotic cancel out my pill?

I was put on Klacid XL (Clarithromicin) on the 3rd inactive tablet of the 7 in my Yasmin pack. I am on a 5 day course which means I will finish on Friday, on the same day I take my last inactive pill before I start the new pack. So for how long after I finish the antibiotic will I not be protected against pregnancy for? I don't want an unwanted pregnancy, I'm only 20.

It depends on the antibiotic.  It can go anywhere from a week to a month.  Ask your doctor or a pharmacist to be safe.
