Hi, so maybe this question is ridiculous but to be honest I've no idea if I've had a pregnancy risk or not.
I've been taking the pill (ovranette) properlly since April and its worked great, last Wednesday night my boyfriend stayed over and we had sex, we used a condom but he still came inside of me, because I'm on the pill I never checked the condom I just presumed that it worked right each time. I hadn't seen my boyfriend in a while so to be honest we wern't really paying attention to much stuff apart from each other, but I've been taking the pill right so it didnt worry me.
This Monday, 4 days after having sex I had to go on antobiotics and the doctor told me the pill wouldnt be effective for the next week, thats fine as I dont plan on having for the next few weeks nyways, but what worries me is that it could interfere with last week ? Its obviouly way too late for a morning after pill at this stage but, since I was on the pill then the antobiotics shouldnt effect it, should it ?
Im kinda freaking out here cos I read online that I could still have ovulated because of the antobiotics, I'm just really confused and really scared right now, a pregnancy would be terrible right now, please tell me I'm not in any risk, -please please tell me that I'm fine.

The antibiotics only affect the way the pill works while you take them. Yes, if the pill stops being effective, you could ovulate. Sperm can live in the vagina for a few days, but it doesn't sound like you came into contact with your boyfriend's semen anyway. That's the beauty of using two birth control methods; if you're concerned about one, the other one is there.
If your boyfriend was the one to handle the condom, how about you ask him if it worked as it was supposed to? When a condom breaks, it's obvious; it will split or shred. If the condom was intact you can be assured that no semen came into contact with your vagina.
It sounds likely, unless your boyfriend reports that the condom broke (which I hope he would have told you at the time), that all of your birth control methods worked as they were meant to.
