Hi and welcome.

Yes, that is right this drug decreases the effectiveness of your hormonal contraceptives, if you had sex during fertile period chances of pregnancy are there but small as you have just started taking the drug. You can discuss with your doctor as there are other alternatives such as gapentine, lyrica etc which has no effect on contraceptives.

Let me know if you have further questions.
