Birth control usage before antibiotics

Patient: Hello! I have been on the birth control pill for about a week and a half and 4 days ago I had sex with my boyfriend where he ejaculated into me. Today I am supposed to start antibiotics for a bad flu I have, but I am worried that the antibiotics could reverse the affect of the pill four days ago and I could get pregnant. Is this impossible?
