User :   Hello Doctor,
I had unprotected sex with my husband last night and this is my first month on the pill, I have taken about 14 of them. Today, I woke up with a fever and have to start on antibiotics for a throat infection. Since the Zpack interferes on the pill, is there anything I can do to guarantee I will not get pregnant? Do I have to go get Plan B? Thank you.
Doctor :   hi
User :   hello and thanks in advance for the input
Doctor :   You can continue with the pills.
User :   I wont have any relations next, but I was worried the sperm can live inside a womans body for a couple days
Doctor :   Sperms can come times stay for a period of 3 to 5 days in the uterus.
User :   So it's ok to take the Zpack
Doctor :   Yes you can continue with the oral pills.
User :   Thank you, the forum is very helpful
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting us.
