Do antibiotics effect my birth control?

Hi, I'm a 20 year old female.

I have just been prescribed flucloxacillin on the same day I had a nexplanon implant fitted and I am still taking my pill and have been for 10 days up to now. However a day after I had my implant fitted my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex. I was wondering if I will not be as protected because I am on flucloxacillin antibiotics (I have been taking these for two days) I thought I would be okay as I have my implant as well as my pill but now I'm starting to worry!

the antibiotics can affect your prevention to pregnancy. But honestly there is atleast a 40% chance you would get pregnant., I dont think you are, but wait until its time for your period. If your late dont freak out. Wait a week, if still no aunt flow, try a test
