I had my ACL reconstructed on June 9th of this year (knee surgery) and know that they would've given my anti-biotics to fight infections. I am on the pill and had my period about a week and a half ago. But for the past two weeks have been quite nauseous no matter what time of day; whether I eat or don't eat. Is it possible to be pregnant?
Yes, it is possible you're pregnant but if you told them you were on the pill, they should have either given you medications that don't conflict with your pills or told you to use an alternate method for the rest of the month. It's best to take a pregnancy test just to be sure, as you need care if you did become pregnant
