    Had sex with my boyfriend whilst on the 7 day break from taking Microgynon, read up before about this and the leaftlet that came with the pill and eveything online suggested that this was fine providing I'd taken all the pills correctly (I had) and I started the next pack on time (I did).
    But I just read on the internet that having sex during the withdrawal bleed is only safe providing you've taken the pills correctly etc. and nothing else is affecting them.
    I just started a course of antibiotics, a couple of days ago (haven't had sex since), is it possible it could have affected the pills I'd already taken?
    Sorry if this seems like a stupid worry, but it's a nagging thought at the back of my mind...

    Excellent, was pretty sure it wouldn't but just thought I'd ask anyway!
    Thanks!
