Could I be pregnant on the pill and antibiotics?


Q: Hello! I have been on the Pill for over a year now. My boyfriend and I have been having unprotected sex for the past 4 months but he pulls out before he ejaculates. I am also on antibiotics. My last period was 17 days ago but it was brownish in color and lasted 1 day (usually red 3-5days). I've been feeling tired, nauseous, and episodes of diarrhea. I took a pregnancy test--negative. Is it too early? Could I still be pregnant? Thanks.

Symptoms:  Unusual period, tiredness, nausea, diarrhea
