    The doctor was not able to fill my BCP prescription on time which should have been Friday. I had to wait until Monday to get pills and take them.. I only took one each day which i was told a week later should have taken two the first two days. i had unprotected sex two week's later and my boyfriend did release inside of me. I got sick with a sinus infection two days after and i had to get on antibiotics. What are the chances that i can be pregnant have taken the pills three days late and then getting on antibiotics? Please help.

    You should be okay. You were on the pills for two weeks before having sex. Also, there are very few antibiotics that actually affect birth control and those are usually prescribed for TB.
