Yes, anitbiotics can lessen the affect on birthcontrol. You need to wait until you are completley done with your antibiotics. Then, I'd wait another three or four days. You can always use a condom while you are on antibiotics. You can also ask the doctor the prescribed the antibiotics to you and they will be able to give you a better answer.
