I have been taking birth control pills since I was about 14, originally for PCOS. Im now 20 and am on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo. I started antibiotics on Thanksgiving and took for 10 days and knew that my pill would be affected. I finished all of my antibiotics on Dec 2 while I was taking the inactive pills. Started my new pack yesterday. Currently am using monistat for a yeast infection, due to the antibiotics, but am at the end of treatment for that, so my husband was hoping to have sex. Thought i would be up for it, but after one minute of sex with a condom, I made him pull out. We never use condoms, but wanted to be safe. However, it was still uncomfortable, assuming the infection was still there. Thus, we stopped. However, i didnt know monistat can break down latex. Should I be worried about pregnancy since I just started a new pack of birth control pills without antibiotics, used a condom, and it was literally a minute with no ejaculation? Thank you!

Since you have started a new pack of pills since you finished your course of antibiotics, you don't have to worry about a pregnancy risk.

It's a good idea to give yourself a little bit of time to recover from a yeast infection. Insertion can still feel a little uncomfortable, even if you are done with the treatment. If you are still experiencing symptoms, however, it is a good idea to be seen by your doctor, just to make sure you don't need another course of treatment.
