I've been on lutera a full month. I always take my pills every day. My husband & I had sex and then I thought about the medication and got scared & took a ovulation test. It came out positive, (very light line)so odds are I was ovulating.
How long ago was it that you took the z-pak? You normally would want to use a back up while you are on the antibiotic and for seven days after you finish. If your episode of unprotected sex was in that seven days after period there is a chance you could have become pregnant. How big of a chance? It is hard to say. Even if you take nothing for birth control, as you know, not every time will get you pregnant but that chance is there. If the unprotected sex happened in the last 72 hours and you definitely dont want a baby now you could try taking Plan B. If it has been beyond 72 hours talk to your OB-GYN and find out what she/he suggests. Or you could wait it out and see if you actually do get pregnant then decide what to do then. I have two unplanned for babies and they are the joys of my life!
