a little late for this time but should that ever happen again remember Plan B- emergcency contraception. Taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex protects against pregnancy.

Yeah, that happened to us and I ran to the drugstore and grabbed some Plan B. I’m no doctor, but I don’t think you would be experiencing lower back pain and peeing more frequently after 1 week of conceiving, that sounds like it would happen after the baby was taking up some room.

I agree with modern daisy, one week is too early for pregnancy symptoms to show up and even too early to get a pregnancy test.  Try to relax for a little while and wait to see if you period comes.

I wouldn’t panic. Although being on antibiotics CAN lower your bc pill effectiveness, it isn’t probable.

I would go to the dr, though, because your kidneys are back there and you could have a kidney infection 9with the backache and all).

Call your doctor! I didn’t realize that antibiotics lowered bc effectiveness, so I went and got some plan b, but the doctor I spoke to said the particular antibiotic I was on doesn’t affect bc.

Def plan B, but ONLY after you’ve called your doctor.  There are only certain types of antibiotics which can mess w/your birth control.  I think they are cephalosporins?  (sp?).  But do check it out.

Plan B is imho a bit harsh on your body yet effective, but something you don’t want to do unless you have talked w/doc about options.  And for some Plan B is meddling with other issues too.  Again, up to you, but do talk to doc first.

Plan B is effective if taken within 72 hours so, as I said, too late for this time.

As others have suggested, you may have a urinary tract infection. Normally that would not be good news, but in this case might be a preferable alternative.

I don’t think peeing alot is a pregnancy sign and agree that it combined w/lbp is more indicative of a kidney infection perhaps.

When I was pregnant, I felt lbp, but also felt flu-like a bit.  Just really tired, sleepy, listless too.

I remember calling my internal med doc and telling him I needed to have a urinalysis as I believed I had a kidney infection.

Didn’t pee alot until I had entered into my 7th month and my son was bouncing on my urinary bladder.  My sis would agree with both of her kids, no prob with excessive peeing until last trimester.

Not all antibiotics diminish the pill’s effectiveness, and it’s the ones that do aren’t 100%. Ask your doctor about the antibiotic you took and whether it interacts with pill. One week is very early for pregnancy symptoms — you’re probably just nervous or you could have a UTI, so ask the doc about that too. Next time, I agree, keep some Plan B around just in case. And try to relax — you’re probably not pg.

How many days exactly?  If you get an IUD inserted, I think that prevents pregnancy up to 7 days later.  Sounds like you aren’t wanting to have a kiddo for awhile, so IUDs last 5 or 10 years but can be removed eariler.  I was just reading about this in my mayo pregnancy book…

I didn’t have to try to get pregnant… it just happened. I was on BC but I can admit that I wasn’t using it properly. All you can do is take a test when the time comes and cross your fingers… I don’t believe any bride wants to be pregnant on her big day!

Good luck and hopefully it turns out for the best.. My little one was the best thing that ever happened to us and we had her at 19! So chin up, both options aren’t too bad 😉

FYI, plan b will probably not be very effective when on antibiotics because it is only a very strong dose of what is normally found in bc pills, sorry i can’t be anymore help!

I was told by a pharmacist that if you are on certain antibiotics that will make your BC less effective then it wasn’t worth taking the plan B because the antibiotics would have the same effect on Plan B. Does anyone know if this is true? I see why that could be but I thought the Plan B would be strong enough to override the antibiotics!?
