I was taking some medicine for a tooth infection...

User Profile
1 week ago my bf and I had sex. I take bc everyday.He wore a condom aswell & said he didn't cum. About a month & 1/2 ago, I was taking some medicine for a tooth infection. After the minute, he pulled out. When he pulled out, the condom came off inside me. About 1/2 of the condom was sticking out of me. He said he didn't come, but I think he might have a little. I have had pains and cramps n my upper and lower left side of my stomach. Also, been having mid and upper back pain & have been more tired lately. Is this due to school and work or am I pregnant?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Condoms are known to have failures. If you were on other medications while being on hormonal contraceptive pills, the efficacy might get affected, and unprotected intercourse can put you at risk for pregnancy. The symptoms could suggest early pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods/withdrawal bleeding. You should have your periods/withdrawal bleeding that should occur while taking the placebo pills in the last week of pill pack (if you are on 28 days pill pack), or during pill-free week (if you are on 21 day pill pack). Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Stop the hormonal contraceptive use if pregnancy is suspected, or if pregnancy gets confirmed.
Take care.
