we always use condoms, but some people say that the antibiotics cause pregnancy, does this happen even when using condoms as a second form of protection ?

So, when someone is taking a medication that may interfere with the effectiveness of their BC, then what we advise is they use a back-up method such as condom, which it sounds like you plan on doing. As long as the condom is used correctly and does not break or come off, then you can assume it offered the protection it was supposed to.
