Spotted instead of period

My girlfriend started an antibiotic while on the pill and we used the pull out technique the only time we had sex during this period. Last week instead of her period she spotted for 2 days. I dont know if this means she is pregnant since we only had sex for about a minute before we moved on to something safer or if it is just hger bady's reaction to the antibiotics.

We will not know if she is pregnant. She should take a home pregnancy test and follow the instructions exactly.

It is also well worth the effort to pick up condoms with the antibiotics next time or abstain from sex. She should also consider herself fertile for 7 days after the last antibiotics dose. It will give you both much more peace of mind.
