so, we (me and my fiance) had unprotected sex just around the ovulation time; 5 days after that my doctor prescribed me some antibiotics (which she says will stay in my body for 2 weeks). 9 days after sex i noticed some light spotting and a little cramps and i thought my period is coming (cpuld be implantation??). the bleeding stopped and now i’m on day 31 of my period month and still nothing (my period month is usually around 26 days long). yesterday i noticed some cramping again but still no blood.. internet says antibiotics can cause your period to delay but i’m starting to think i might be pregnant.
what do you think? have you had an expiriance like that?

Yes. You had unprotected sex, of course you could be pregnant. As thumperbear : said, take a test. Speculation here won’t give you any answers.

ezaeza : You mention antibioitics and I’m not sure of the relevance – are you inferring you are on the contraceptive pill? If so, the widespread belief that antibiotics affect it/stop it working isn’t strictly correct, it is only affected by a narrow pool of ABs – “You don’t normally need to use additional contraception if you’re taking antibiotics other than rifampicin and rifabutin. However, if the antibiotics or the illness they are treating cause diarrhoea or vomiting, absorption of the contraceptive pill may be affected.”
However like others say – take a test (as even if you are on the pill, it isn’t 100% effective full stop.)

You had unprotected sex close to ovulation so yes of course you could be pregnant. Why haven’t you taken a test?

Take a test, we can’t tell you anything concrete.

i had some sort of imflammation so that’s why i got antibiotics, but no, i’m not on the pill.
it wasn’t the exact time as i calculated my ovulation would be but it was soon after
i was just asking if anyone experienced delayed period because of antibiotics; my question sounds a bit stupid now that i read it again
anyway i’m taking the test in an hour so we’ll see 🙂
