The actual decrease in the effectiveness of the oral contraceptive pill due to antibiotics has not been studied. But because of a theoretical increased chances of pregnancy when using antibiotics with birth control pills, additional contraception other than birth control pills is often advised. Since you've also taken a morning after pill, there is little chance that you will be pregnant.
