Thank for choosing HCM, I under stand your concern, look mam Peniciilin is prime and basic old drug for 'ASOT' being used since long being, the late hypersensitivity of this drug is very very rare, but still frequently negative test dose test should be carried out for safety, no there would be not effect on menses, take care of your daughter, good day.
