Antibiotics-Morning After pill

I was on a course of antibiotics which I completed on last thursday. This Tuesday (4 days later) I had intercourse without protection. I took the morning after pill on Wednesday morning. I am on tryphasil. I am due to get my periods next week Tuesday. I am yellow on the card at the moment. Could I be pregnant?

I have read on this sie that antibiotics do minimise the effect of pill contraception. I'm not too sure about the morning after pill. You can try the home preggie test it should be positive if you are pregnant as you say you are due for your P on Tuesday.

Ladies we should do the double protection thing, be on a pill and condomise as well, just to be safe. Many ladies on the preggies chatline have fallen pregnant while on a pill.

Sorry, I forgot to add, should I have a home preganancy done? When should I do the test? I am so worried as I have bein taking a lot of medication before the antibiotics (heavy sinus).
