The antibiotics could interfere with the Pill, so pregnancy is a possibility.
The Pill is more than 99% effective if taken correctly. This means taking it at roughly the same time each day.There is a leeway of a few hours. Certain medications, such as antibiotics, can make the Pill ineffective, but generally you are protected without having to use extra protection.
