IrishGirl, most of the failures of the pill to prevent pregnancies are due to anti-biotics use. The anti-biotics makes the pill less effective. Have him use condomes for the duration of the anti-biotics and 7 days after that.

It is not possible to comment on your individual situation as there are too many unknowns. You should however be fine from sex before you started taking the anti-biotics, even if it was the same day.

Take care!
