Patient : I had sex for the first time yesterday. I am on birth control and have been for about four months. I am also on amoxicilin, recovering from strep throat. Yesterday during sex, he did not ejaculate, he "pulled out" and "calmed" himself down. I know antibiotics decrease the effectiveness of birth control, so what are the chances I could have gotten pregnant? and How will I know when I am "in the clear"?
