... taking amoxicillin for a 7.5 days and my proestrogen birth control MonoNessa at the same time. It was supposed to be 2 pills twice a day and then on the last day just 2 pills in the morning which I did. I took my bc everyday around the same time, I always do. Two/three days later my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex and he pulled out before ejaculating. Is it true that this type of birth control isn't effected by antibiotics? Also how long does it take for antibiotics to wear off?
Antibiotic and birth control interactions?

* I was taking the amoxicillin for 7.5 days.
I am also supposed to be getting my period this week, I just started taking the different colored pills today ( they usually take about 3 days before I get my period)
Even though he pulled out way before he ejaculated, am I at a higher risk of pregnancy even though it was at least 72 hours after I had finished my antibiotic dosage?
Although I've never taken the exact antibiotics or birth control you mentioned, I can tell you I've taken antibiotics and birth control at the same time with no problems.
Your birth control. Is effective by antibiotics. You should use a condom while on it and 7days after.
