This is treated with a different antibiotic but an exam is needed to rule out other infections which have specific treatments. So, I don't recommend you take the amoxicillin. Call your OB instead and get checked. ...Read more

I had sex while taking amoxicillin a week before my inactive birth control pills started. How soon can I take a pregnancy test? I started spotting 2 days before my inactive pills started and it continued for a total of 5 days. Its now been 3 weeks since w

The: The spotting you experienced is a sign that your birth control pill efficacy was affected. There are pregnancy tests available that can detect pregnancy up to 5 days before your period. Recall when the first day of your last menstral period was (last month). If you miss your period 30 days later, that is the best time to take a pregnancy test. Taking a pregnacy test too early between periods can produce a false negative result. This is because the pregancy test is testing for the 'pregancy hormone' which take the body time to be detectable in your body. ...Read more
