I am on birth control and take it almost perfectly with the exception of taking my pill a couple hours late every now and then. But I also take antibiotics for acne and I worry it increases my chances of getting pregnant. I also do not get my period on the placebo week I get it on the third week of a 28 day pill pack. I'm Worried I still may ovulate so my boyfriend and I use condoms. Yesterday the condom broke and he may have finished inside of me and we are extremely worried. I am considering using plan B but I hear it is very bad for you and messes with your system and hormones and makes things difficult in the future. I am still really worried about getting pregnant and can use any advice. I definitely can not get pregnant right now.
You do not need Plan B. Very few antibiotics actually interfere with hormonal birth control pills. I am certain that the ones for acne do not interfere, but if you put the name of your regular birth control pill into the search bar of this website, you'll see that there is a section for contraindications (other medications that interfere with your pill). You can check there.
If you're still unsure, let me know the name of your pill & I'll put it in the search field.
