I've been on birth control pills for almost 3 years. However, I just ended a week and a half's worth of antibiotics. My boyfriend and I used a condom, but it broke so I went got Plan B immediately. I only have 4 active birth control pills left until my placebo pills start. Should I continue taking my regular birth control pills even though I've taken Plan B? Or wait until I get my period to start a whole new pack?

Please do continue to take your pills as you normally would. Randomly quitting the pill in the middle of a pack now would only confuse your body further.
