Common cold with the pill
I know that antibiotics effective the pill, but what happens if you have unprotected sex and the next day come down with the flu and have to take antibiotics. Is your chance of falling pregnant great because sperm can survive inside for a few days?

If you use precautions from the time that you start the antibiotics, you should be fine. If there is a breakthrough ovulation, it will happen after a few days, not immediately.
