Had already had it. I knew there was no way I could miss work the following week so I took 2 amoxicillinin on Saturday and 1 amoxicillinin on Sunday. My fiancé and I had sex twice before I took the amoxicillinin on Saturday and we had sex once on Sunday. IT didn't occur to me that I had taken a prescription and mixed it with birth control until Sunday night when it was too late. Even though I'm on the pill I never let my fiance finish in me. Last Sunday I had just started week 2 of my pills in my pack. I was panicking to the point of tears. I took plan B on Monday morning to ease my nerves. My fiancé and I had sex Wednesday and Saturday this past week. Again he never finishes in me. I just read to Use a backup birth control 7 days after you take prescriptions. I haven't missed a pill in this pack and I've taken them like I was supposed to. Do you think I'm pregnant or there's a chance that I am? I am suppose to start my period the week after next
Hopefully, you are okay. Antibiotics can decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills so you should always use back up protection, like a condom, for the entire time you are on an antibiotic and for seven days after you finish the antibiotic. It doesnt matter if he ejaculates within you-men leak small amounts of sperm all through sex, so even if you dont see it and he doesnt feel it (and he wont, this secretion happens without their control) there is still sperm present so it doesnt really do anything "extra" to protect you by not letting him ejaculate within you. It is, quite frankly, a wasted gesture. I doubt Plan B will "ease your nerves" as it usually causes your cycle to become irregular and it may delay your next period and Plan B is basically the same kind of drug as your birth control pills and would be effected by antibiotics too. Most likely you are okay-there is a slim possibility that you could have ovulated but its pretty slim-dont worry too much just yet. You just need to be sure that if you have sex from now on when you are on an antibiotic, you need to use back up protection-condoms with spermicide are pretty much your best choice or better yet, abstain, for the entire time that you are on antibiotics and for seven days after finishing them. As for the times you had sex and didnt use back up? there is nothing to be done about it at this point other than keep your fingers crossed. Wait and see if your period shows up and again, Plan b may delay your period. If you are over a week late for your period, you can do a pregnancy test then.
