I have been on reclipsen for 2 months and I am currently on the first week of month 3. I only took the antibiotic Amoxicillin for 1 day on thursday 3 times that day. The next day on friday I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. We both were kind of panicky so I called my doctors and pharmacists to see if I would be fine. They said I should be good because I have always taken my pill on time and never missed a pill but there was still some chance. So to be sure we got plan b and I took it within the 12 hour mark of having the unprotected sex. I still continued taking my birth control at the same time. Now my real worry, I know this may sound stupid, but the day after I took the plan b on saturday I had unprotected sex again. Am I at risk of becoming pregnant? And is the antibiotics out of my system? If not how long does it take to get out if I only took the antibiotics for one day? Thank you for anyone that has an answer for me.

Also he did not cum in in me either times, I know there can still be sperm in the precum, but didn't want to leave this little detail out.
There is a small risk of pill failure while taking antibiotics. To reduce the risk you should use an additional method of contraception such as condoms while you are on the antibiotics and then for another 7 days once you have finished.
Since you had sex again and weren't using extra precautions there is still a small risk. You should see your doctor again ... and purchase some condoms.
