Stop having unprotected sex. It could be possible to get pregnant even while on your period. If you're taking any medication that may interfere with your birth control method, use a different method (condom). It's probably a good idea to still use a condom, as the pill won't protect you from STD's. Condoms may not protect you from every STD, but it's more protection than not using one.

If you got your period, it is not likely that you will ovulate and conceive. It can happen, but not likely.

Yes, antibiotics can drastically lower the effectiveness of birth control pills, depo shots, and other forms of hormonal birth control. If you use a birth control pill, information about side effects and factors that can reduce effectiveness should be in the informational pamphlet or print out that comes with the prescription each month. If you use a shot, IUD, or other form of birth control administered by your doctor, you should have been given a print out or pamphlet detailing side effects and factors that can reduce effectiveness.

Yes, antibiotics can affect the pill. Your doctor should have told you that when he prescribed the antibiotics.
