Antibiotics and Menstrual cycle

I have a question. I took antibiotics (amoxocillion) and not long after i started my cycle. I'm not on birth control, i read that antibiotics can mess up something with
hormones and birth control.. but im positive it can cause you to have cycle with out the birth control also. Ive had this happen before on amoxocillion but i just spotted. now almost two weeks later im starting my cycle again. On the normal date i usually start though. Is that normal? I kinda though i wouldn't start my cycle on reg. Date due to having it start early. And with it being not even 2 weeks apart is this bad for my body?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Not all antibiotics can interact with pills and amoxycillin,never.So, just take them regularly as directed and do not worry unduly about either your cycle or the potency of the birth control.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
