There : There has been much debate over this topic and there is no concrete evidence either way.

Possible pregnancy on lo loestrin fe with antibiotics. Would be 16 weeks but only have abdominal cramping and pressure and have had 5 negative tests?
Pregnancy unlikely: One urine pregnancy test, done correctly, with a negative result means NOT pregnant, unless the pregnancy just began within the past 2 weeks. One can repeat the test 1 week later, to confirm the first negative result. Commonly used antibiotics don't noticeably change the risk of pregnancy if a woman is taking her birth control pills correctly, and is not having vomiting nor diarrhea. ...Read more

Natural probiotics: I believe 'natural' probiotics are better than pills. My personal favorite is yogurt - which these days comes in many brands and formulations like yogurt drinks. If you're not a yogurt fan, there is sour cream, (raw) sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha. With cipro, (ciprofloxacin) the major side-effects are nausea, diarrhea, weakness of tendons, and dizziness.
