Can you get pregnant on antibiotics and birth control pills?

In brief: VERY RARELY

In the prescribing info, it is said that taking certain antibiotics may reduce the potency or effectiveness of birth control pills.
In my experience, I have never seen this in over 30 years of practice. At your age of 44, conception under any circumstances may be unlikely, though it does occur.
