Dear Kitty,

As far as my knowledge goes the fact that the antibiotic was initiated the day after the unprotected sexual encounter, in all likelyhood you would be safe.

Once you are on the antibiotic and till up to 7 days after women are advised to keep using added contraceptive protective measures.
