a risky game?


Hiya

I'm new to this section of baby BnB....

We have a 8mth old daughter and I am hoping to TTC again this June when LO will be a year old. Hubby has kinda left it up to me and so I have decided on this time scale so that we can enjoy Lucy before another baby comes along. I am 36yrs old this year and so don't want to wait too long for baby #2. I also want to get the nappy years over with. I found the first 5 months really hard going and so just want to get on with it...iykwim?

Anyway..... a couple of weeks ago, I had an aggressive bout of Tonsilitis and my GP put me on a high dose of Penicilin. I am on the Pill. I know that anti-biotics can affect the pilll but last night we DTD without using any other contraception. I have read on the internet today that you need to be careful upto a week after finishing any antibiotics.... I knew that mixing the pill and antibiotics is dodgey and so does hubby (because I told him last week)...

I kinda feel like I have played Russian Roulette.... anyone have any idea of the chances of me actually conceiving last night?

You can look on sites on the internet like when your fertile and ovulate etc (if you know when your LMP was) .. and if you was when you did it then its a possiblity, i did this once when i was on the pill and was on antibiotics and totally forgot but i was fine cause i didnt ovulate or anything in the right space of time.. PM if you want and if you tell me when your LMP was and how long your cycles are (25days 27days etc) ill work it out for you!

good luck !!!

^^ wss ^^ look up your fertile days, if you DTD over those days its slightly possible that you could have fallen pregnant

I've heard your chances are less than 5% from my obgyn and my husband is a doctor as well and says that some antibiotics, including Penicillin, may cause a slight decrease in effectiveness of the BCP, but only around less than 1% so you should be ok

Here's a link to some info that also may help set your mind at ease

Many thanks for all your replies..... I think it we DTD during ovulation just due to increased CM over those couple of days... I'm not sure of the dates of my LMP, it would probably of been 2 weeks/10 days before...

Fingers crossed that I'm not. It wouldn't be the end of the world, I would just like a slightly bigger age gap.

I think the chance of you conceiving is pretty slim, a lot of doctors don't even bother telling women to take extra precautions anymore because there's a debate whether antibiotics actually affect the pill.

I was on antibiotics for tonsillitis a few months back and didn't use extra precautions and I didn't fall pregnant.
