Birth Control & Antibiotics

Ok. I am so confused. I take Seasonique regularly (which makes things interesting since I only have 4 periods a year). I am a week and a half away from my reminder pills in my pack. Recently (about 3 weeks ago) I was put on three different antibiotics. I started having breakthrough spotting and slight cramping about a week after I started the antibiotics. So, I call the doctor and she tells me my birth control isn't working...so use a backup. About 2 weeks ago my partner and I started messing around and forgot the condom for a minute or two. We hadn't had sex since then until tonight and afterwards I started cramping and bleeding. It's not the same kind of spotting as the breakthrough bleeding. Is there any way I could be pregnant or is this just some of the after effects of all of the antibiotics?
