I am not sure why the pills were stopped while you were on antibiotics.I recently had a bout of influenza and then a mild infection for which I was taking pills and then antibiotic was going on.However, there's nothing to worry.If you have used pills for even 2-3 months before this incidence, the chances of you conceiving is very small in the first 2 months of stopping the pills.In some cases, pregnancy has happened even after 12 months of leaving the pills.You may want to do a quick urine pregnancy test in case your periods are delayed by more than 7 days.
