Suffering from pimples on face. Taking doxt-s medication, delayed periods. Side effects of medication?

Hi I m 23 year old girl, I have started getting pimples since then heavily on my face. The doctor has advised me to use Doxt-s everyday for three months. My menses normally occurs after 5days delay of every month, but since I have started using Doxt-s for the last 5 days I m yet to have my mensus even after 10 days delay of menstrual cycle, Is this a side effect of Doxt- s? Should I be continuing to use this? Can you please advice if there are any other side effects of this medicine? Thanks heaps in advance. Kind Regards

hello,menstrual disturbance with doxycycline is not known, to the best of my knowledge.your dermatologist has rightly prescribed it based on the type of pimples you have.avoid sunlight,pregnancy and taking it on empty stomach.for other details on its effects and side effects, your doctor would be the best to explain.
