Depends on the antibiotic, but yes, they can render pills ineffective. You might as well take a test, no way to know for sure otherwise.

Some antibiotics affect the effectiveness of birth control pills.  That is how my stepsister got pregnant.  Her pharmacist and her doctor forgot to tell her to use a backup method while using antibiotics.  You might be pregnant based on the timing and probably should test until you get your period just to be safe.

@MrsCreeToBe:  i was under the impression that pre-ejaculate had a higher concentration of sperm than regular old ejaculate.

Wow.  Oh honey!  Yes, there can be sperm in pre-ejaculate.  That is why they call it the “pull and pray” method.  It reduces your chances but pregnancy is still possible.

There is usually only sperm in pre-cum if he has not peed after the last time he ejaculated.

The two week wait is the period of time from ovulation and the most likely conception date so you are right within the window one could expect to start seeing signs of pregnancy.  Just go to the local Dollar Store and pick up a few tests.  Take one tonight and one in a few days if you still haven’t had your period.

Also, a read of Taking Charge of Your Fertility might clear up a lot of misinformation it seems you might have and give you a better idea of how it all works.

Not being condescending.  There are studies both ways but if you don’t want to get pregnant why take the chance?  It’s unfortunate that you weren’t informed that antibiotics can affect the effectiveness of birth control in the first place.

I’m sorry but sometimes it’s hard to NOT sound condescending when people come online to ask others whether or not they could be pregnant. I mean, did you have sex? Yes? Okay, well then you KNOW that you could be pregnant. The internet cannot tell you whether or not you are, a test can. So yes, you should take a test.
