Can antibiotics delay/skip periods?

I went to a skin specialist last month for skin acne treatment. He diagnosed me with acne vulgaris and prescribed antibiotics and anti allergy for one full month everyday. I have taken them as per prescription but I skipped my period for this month. I started to have spotting for 4-5 days 3 week after my expected period's date. I did pregnancy tests, even one today, they are negative.
I am very much worried.. Kindly help me

Hi, lintaa345.

Thank you for posting.

When you take antibiotics, it can affect your menstrual cycle in a few different ways.

Check-in with your GYN if you are still concerned.
