If you are taking antibiotics while on the pill they become less effective. So the chances of becoming pregnant are greater. But if you took a test and it was negative, you probably aren't. If you took it before you were late for your period, there is a chance that it wasn't accurate. You may not have been producing enough of the pregnancy hormone for the test to read. Wait until you are late, if you are, and take another test.
