I was on a Bactrim generic medication for a week, taking it twice a day although I missed a pill of it. I just stopped on Friday. I've been taking my bc (Emoquette) for about two weeks and it said after the first week of taking it that I am protected. Yesterday me and my partner had unprotected sex for the first time and I'm now worried that the antibiotics could have messed with the birth control. Should I take plan b? Will that mess up my birth control?
The antibiotics can effect it. Even a week after you stop you should use condoms. If you take plan b it will mess up your body. With or without any birth control. We can't be sure it effected the bc pill, but if you're in a position where you can't take a chance, then plan b is the way to go. Be prepared to have bleeding at weird times and a delayed period. Keep taking your birth control pill as its scheduled during this time. And use a condom until next saturday. Plan B will do nothing after the fact.
