Meds interfere with birth control

Does anyone know if I take a medicine that says it may make birth control pills less effective during my period week if it increases pregnancy risk?

It's an antifungal and I'm on micronor. I'm hoping that since im not taking the bc pill that week anyway it won't matter?

It can increase your risk, but I don't know for how long. Call the pharmacy where you got the meds and talk to the pharmacist.
