Early periods, usually regular, on contraceptive pill. Taken anti fungal tablets. Is this cause of early periods?

I have been on Cliest contraceptive pill for nearly 5years and my periods have always been regular when they should be. My period has come a week early this month and I am not sure why?

I have recently been prescribed antifungals (Terbinafine 250mg) for a nail infection but cannot find anything online which links the 2. Could this be the cause of my early period?

Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

The antifungal medication does NOT affect the way that the birth control pills works - it is not the cause of your early period. In terms of the early period, this might just be related to taking the pill and thinning of the lining of the uterus which leads to early breakthrough bleeding. Ask you doctor about a new pill and check a pregnancy test!

I hope that this helps and good luck!
