Pill/ Anti-Biotics/ Condoms

Postby busybee » Sat May 12, 2012 11:53 am

Hi Everyone,

I think I might be worrying over nothing but hey thats just me.

I have been with by boyfriend for over a year now and I am on the POP and we always use condoms as I really do not want to get pregnant. Yesterday morning I went to the doctors and received antibiotics. Before taking them I had sex with my boyfriend and the condom broke ( I dont mean ripped I mean it had completely fallen apart). I decided not to take my antibiotics yesterday but I have started taking it this morning. Does anyone know if I am protected against pregnancy? I think I am as the Pill should have still been working? But having never really needed to rely on the pill before I am nervous.

I am in my final year on university and sitting exams for the next four weeks. Immediately after my exams I am due to start a new job so could really do without this worry :(

Hi hun, as you are probably aware some anti-biotics can stop the pill from working, however as you didnt actually take the anti-biotic before you had sex, the contraceptive pill you took the day before you had sex should still have protected you for the 24 hours after that. If you are unsure, take a pregnancy test but i would say there is a small chance you could fall pregnant when you are taking the pill aswell. Be careful while you are on anti-biotics when having sex, i know you use condoms aswell which is sensible but they can easily break as you have found out xx

Hi me again....

It has now been 3 weeks since the incident and I am now 2 days late for my period as it was due Friday. I took a pregnancy test friday and it was negative and then took one first thing this morning which was also negative. Yesterday I experienced a tiny bit of spotting but today it seems to have disappeared again.

I am reallly worrying about this now. I have my final uni exam friday and feel like im going to fail as cannot concentrate to revise.

Any ideas whats happening? xxxxx
