I finished Amoxicillin/Clavulanate 875mg/125mg sunday morning and monday morning i took levonelle step one emergency pill. Does the pill work?

Probably: Emergency contraceptives are not 100% effective even without being on antibiotics, and it is thought that antibiotics may decrease their effectiveness even further. However, it is not know how significant that decrease is. I would suggest you check a pregnancy test in a couple weeks regardless. And if you are taking antibiotics, use a condom or diaphragm for protection instead of hormonal pills ...Read more

Fir combination pills, if you start it with the first 5 days of the start of your menstrual cycle, you should be safe, and would need a secondary protection like condom or a diaphragm if started the pill later.

Been on apribirth controlpill for 1month&3days;2weeks into1st month was on antibiotics for week.Had unprotected sex today, ended period2dayago, am i ok?

Being asymptomatic for the next 1-2 weeks is a good sign, however, some stds may be asymptomatic for sometime, hence, i advise to follow with your pcp and/or gyn doctor and get checked for hiv, hepatitis b, chlamydia, gonorrhea. ...Read more
