Brief Answer:
Within one week of stopping the pills

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
After stopping the overal l, possibly in one week you will get withdrawal bleeding.
No need to stop cabergolin. It actually helps in regularization of periods by decreasing prolactin levels.
Usually intake of antibiotics for shorter period may not affect the menstrual cycle.
Repeated intake of antacids can increase the prolactin levels and can affect menstrual cycle.
But taking for shorter period, usually will not affect the hormonal levels.
Possibly you may get periods soon.
If you do not get periods, even after one week of stopping the pills, you may need one D&C.
Don't worry this is rare.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion.
Take care.
