Will medicine for strep throat cause a missed period?

My girlfriend has strep throat with a headache and went to go see the doctor. She has started to feel better but her period was due on the 6th or 7th. I was wondering if that could cause her to miss her period and not have it yet or not have it this month

Hello,

Stress associated with an infection can cause a missed or delayed period. However, it is important to rule out pregnancy with a home pregnancy test.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
