Anyways today me and my bf had s_x and he wasn't sure if he ejaculated he said probably no... and i didn't feel anything.. should i be worried...?

Stephy, I think your fine. I haven't heard of any effects caused by alcohol. Antibiotics, yes. Alcohol, no. I used to be on the pill for quite some time, and I drank... and no pregnancies. I wouldn't be worried unless you find yourself with symptoms.

no worries. When I first started the pill I asked the doctor is alchol affects the pill and it totally doesn't. You have nothing to worry about. Although you should be following the directions and using a back up method the first month. You should be fine though.

Some say it's best to use backup protection for the first month on the pill. You'll probably be fine. The alcohol is not a problem.

Hey Stephy, I was on the pill for 10 years and never had a problem with alcohol and the pill. Although as others have written, antibiotics WILL effect the pill. If you ever skip more than one pill, make sure to use backup protection.

well yes this is my first month and we should have used backup.. but when it's all said and done we didn't... (at least it's a step improvement from using the withdrawal method and using the condom but then taking the condom off halfway =/) Anyways i ahven't skipped any pills.. iread the instruction you're suppose to take the pill the same time everyday.... there have been days whee im like 2-3 hours late because i was on the go and didn't bring my pill with me,... but i haven't skipped an actual day.. Anyways thanks for everyone's imput =)

I am also just started on the pill... this is the end of my 2nd week, beginning of my third week, sometimes i feel sick in my tummy and feel a bit nausea... Im not sure if i got pregranant before i started the pill.. or because i didn't use a condom during my first few weeks when im on the pill... what should i do? Can i still test if im pregrnanat if im on the pill in 2 weeks? or what???
