Question about anti-fungal pill and birth control and periods?

My boyfriend and I fooled around and had sex on December 23rd, while wearing a condom. however we were both quite drunk. He was suffering from 'whiskey dick' and wasn't able to have a proper erection. He tried inserting himself into me various times but after a while we just gave up. (not sure if it could be called full blown sex) He didn't come, and was wearing a condom .
I currently am on the pill for nearly a year now, brand name is Gynera, and I am good in terms of taking it on time everyday and hardly forgetting to take it. However i get very paranoid about getting pregnant. He said there's no risk of pregnancy because he didn't come, I'm on the pill and he wore a condom and plus couldn't insert himself properly (sorry for the visuals haha).

I just finished my pill pack yesterday, and am waiting for my period this week. it should start Tuesday or Wednesday.
However tonight i just started taking terbinafine (generic brand for Lamisil) for a toenail fungus I have. I have to take 2 250mg pills per day for 7 days every 30 days until i see a difference. I read in the instructions leaflet that came with the tablets that it can interfere with periods and regulation. Could it affect my period/withdrawal bleeding that I am expecting this week? To be very honest I am already getting paranoid about pregnancy and I think that if my period ends up later than usual, due to the terbinafine, that will increase my anxiety and stress.

Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated. thanks and happy new year!
