In brief: Sounds like it

It depends on if the antibiotic you take is one that affects birth control or not.
You can do a quick google search for the name of the antibiotic and see if it has interactions with oral contraceptives. Most antibiotics do not affect birth control and if I understand correctly you were taking the antibiotics during the placebo days of the pill anyway.
