Pretty high. Antibiotics lower the effectivness of the pill. It doesn't matter what week of the pill pack you are on. You need to use a back up method while on antibiotics.

Only certain antibiotics affect the baby such as metronidazole. Penicillin are concidered safe but all medication should be avoided if possible during pregnancy. As it was early on before you even knew you was pregnant its very unlikely any damage has been done as the baby is just a bunch of cells until around 10- 14 days after conception which would be weeks 3 - 4 of your pregnancy as pregnancy is dated from the first day of your last menstrual period (lmp) and conception normally takes place 14 days after lmp. Hope this helps.
