I was wondering what is the chance of me being pregnant due to my situation. Well i have been on BC for about two years now but i got a UTI last week and was put on an antibiotic. i took this antibiotic for 5 days twice a day. Saturday afternoon was my last antibiotic pill and that same night i was with my bf and he pre-cumed on my hand and like 15 mins later i remember sticking my finger in my vagina to see if i was wet and it was the same hand he pre-cumed on so im scared if im pregnant since antibiotic can lower effectiveness of the BC pill? I still dont start my period for any other week. If i get it will it tell me if i am pregnant or not or is it to soon. I need advice quick i dunno what to do.

It depends on the particular antibiotic and your particular pill.

So, what you need to do is call your pharmacist, tell him the type of pill you take and the type of antibiotics you were prescribed, and ask if they contraindicate one another.

Even if they do, you're still looking at a pretty low risk of pregnancy. If you get your period next week, then yes, it's pretty safe to rest assured you are not pregnant.
