Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Stress of injury and medication use can alter hormonal levels. Use of antibiotics also affects efficacy of the hormonal pills, hence if you had been sexually active while being on antibiotics without additional protection, chances of pregnancy could be possible as suggested by your recent symptoms. Wait and watch for your periods. If your usual periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if periods are abnormal, or if you have developed any new symptoms, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause and confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately. If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be done to look for underlying cause for your symptoms. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and evaluation results) would be started to help you control the symptoms and regulate your periods.
Take care.
