Will it be safe to have protected sex or not ?

Ok, here goes. I am on the combined pill, my boyfriend and I had sex for the first time 2 weeks ago. I did get a little infection in the urinary tract but the doctor gave me medication and the next day I was fine. he said it happens, just try pee after sex. This weekend I wanted to make love to my boyfriend again but I am worried for the timing, here is why I am on 21 day back and this weekend will be the end of the pack, meaning I should be starting my period after this weekend. Today, (Wednesday) I was late taking the pill for the first time in 6 months. I was late by 10 hours . It says under 12 hours and you're still protected but I am not fully assured. I did vomit one morning last week. It was a friday morning at around 6am but I had had a vaccination of medication and later then took Urinary tract infection medication. It starting off as a stomach bug feeling, after vomiting I felt better. Havent been sick like that since, just the once after vaccine and meds. I always use a condom DO you think after the late pill and the fact its the end of my pack and soon to be period, that it will be safe to have protected sex ? Or play it safe and just stick to cuddling and wait it out?

Better stick to cudddling, why take chances. May be the vomiting ws unrealated due to the urine infection. Otherwise if your periods are going to start in 2-3 days then there should not be problem actually. dont forget the pills they will lead to complications.

My ENT cultured Proteus Mirabilis from my sinuses about 3 months ago. I took antibiotics. Was re-cultured six weeks ago. They cultured Stenotrophomonus Maltophilia. Took 6 weeks of doxycycline for that. Went back two days ago. They have now cultured e-coli. Holy cow! seems like the bugs are just waiting for the other bugs to get killed so that they can grow. What is going on? Took Microbiology in the spring and we were working with all of these bacteria. Did I somehow get infected then?
