ok so my partner and i had sex and he used a condom and pulled out when he came.. and when he took the condom off he must have spilled a bit on my lower bottom (so not on my vagina)..and i wiped it off as soon as i realised. He checked the condom for any holes and there weren't any. so I guess i'm still safe? As i said a couple of days ago, i'm on the pill but i'm on antibiotics so people say it may reduce the pills efficiency..but with condoms its fine. I wouldnt be worried about this if it were a normal month and I wasn't on antibiotics cos i pretty much rely on the pill for safety, but since this minor thing happened it set my brain into worry mode. Am I worrying for nothing? I'm also not 100% sure about the pills efficiency being deducted because of antibiotics, some articles say "It's now thought the only types of antibiotic that interact with hormonal contraception and make it less effective are rifampicin and rifabutin". sorry for the paragraph..

And also when i wiped it off I wiped my vagina just in case there was any on the outer area..but doesn't sperm die when it is exposed to air? so even if I got some on the vulva when he spilt, it wouldve been exposed to air so it doesnt make sense to travel to the egg? I always take a shower after intercourse and check to see if i see any sign of sperm but usually all I find is the transparent sticky stuff which is probably the condoms lube.. (sorry for TMI !..). I keep saying to myself, if we checked the condom, he literally stretched it and tilted it up and down to see that no cum came out, I guess it is unlikely to cause a pregnancy from some spilt cum right ? sorry for all the craziness

If you give either your doctor or pharmacist a call, they'd have a better idea as to whether the antibiotic your on will interfere with your pill's effectiveness or not.

We can't know exactly where the semen ended up; if someone ejaculates directly onto a partner's vulva there is a pregnancy risk from that, but it sounds like your situation wasn't that clear-cut. We can't say there was no risk at all, but it's minimal at best. And just so you know, even if antibiotics do impact the pill's effectiveness, that doesn't mean it's not doing anything at all! So you would still have a decent amount of protection.
