Antibiotics & hormonal birth control

I'd appreciate any help I can get regarding this!!

So, I've been prescribed to take an antibiotic (amoxicillin & clavulanate), & there's a warning sticker on it that says it may interfere with HBC. I'm currently on my period, on day 4 of my placebo week-- just to be clear, my taking the antibiotic now isn't going to compromise my bc effectiveness of sex had in the past, right? (which hasn't been recent, it's been 1 week+ since). Stupid question, I know.

But how soon after I stop taking this antibiotic can I relatively safely go back to having unprotected sex again?
