Ideally antibiotics have no role in delaying periods other than Rifampin that interferes with efficacy of BC pills. Delaying of periods can be due to stress, hormonal imbalance, PID, etc. But since you are sexually active & had unprotected sex, it could be because of it.

If you are not on regular BC, implant & have not taken emergency contraceptive pills within 72 hours of sexual intercourse than see a gynecologist at the earliest.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.

I have been takeing ampiclox regularly after unprotected sex, 4 days late already I can t see my period but I experience little bleeding ,though I haven t gotten any sign of pregnancy at all or even cramping for my period. Is it possible for ampiclox to delay my period?

Hi, I am 25 years old. I had a UTI(urgency and pain while urinating) last month around 19th October and my periods started on 21st October(Usually I have a cycle of 35-40 days but this time they came after 29 days). I consulted a doctor and she put me on Ofloxacin for 5 days. After that I was feeling fine but the breast pain which I was experiencing due to PMS continued even after my periods. I went to my doctor and after physical examination she gave me Ampiclox and Evion tablets to be taken for 10 days. Today is the third day of medicine and my periods started again(after 18 days only). So, I am a bit worried about what could be the possible reason for all these. Are these the effects of hormonal changes?
