I have been prescribed Amoxicillin for 10 days twice a day and have been on birth control specifically Ocella for a year and couple months and I take it religiously. Never miss a pill. Well I started tje antibiotics on Wednesday 2/25 and had unprotected sex Friday 2/27 my husband pulled out but doesnt know if anything leaked or not before that. I take my ladt birth control pill today Sat 2/28 and suppose to start my period Wed 3/4 - Sat 3/7. I usually spot wednesday and thursday and have the full on period either friday and saturday and start pills again on sunday. Im just wondering if I need to go get the morning after pill at this point or if there is even a possibility for me to be pregnant?
You should be using a condom when on the antibiotic and for a week after you you're done using it. Pulling out isn't a birth control method. And you don't normally need any other method of birth control when you are taking them correctly, but antibiotics can lessen the effect of the birth control . In your case I would use one until I've taken 7 active pills in a row. When you are on birtth control you do not ovulate as you are taking them correctly, and you can't get pregnant which is what your worried about I think, not the antibiotic yet that is where the problem lies. I do wish that would be stressed to girls when they get antibiotics.
