I was late & had light period. normally my periods are on time & medium for 4 days & light 1 day due to I am on the pill. Does Metronidazole throw off your cycle? or should I take a pregnancy test. Never took the med before & have never had an off period so I am confused.
It can certainly effect it. Antibiotics can decrease the effect of birth control pills.
