Am I pregnant? I had sex 9/2 condom slipped&took an eoc that day. Was on antibiotics&loestrin24, "ovulating" now 9/10. What are the chances of preg?
Check a test: Emergency contraception is used to reduce the risk of an unplanned pregnancy but it certainly does not guarantee. That being said you were also taking regular birth control of the time. That makes pregnancy unlikely but possible. Check a test to find out. Of note you should not be ovulating if you are taking birth control pills. They work by preventing ovulation. ...Read more

I'm on the pill but was taking an antibiotic. I had sex 3 days before ovulation but partner did not ejaculate. Chances of becoming pregnancy?
Risk is very small: Since oral contraceptive pills prevent pregnancy primarily by preventing ovulation, you probably did not ovulate "3 days after sex". Most antibiotics will not affect pills efficacy or will very rarely interfere with their contraceptive functions as long as you take your pills regularly, without vomiting, diarrhea or other major change in your metabolism. Best ask for a LARC an IUD or an implant. ...Read more

Probably not: Most antibiotics don't affect contraception.

Amoxicillin is not related. As long as you were taking your BCP every day, you should not ovulate. ...Read more
