Probably none: The period just coincided with your taking of the antibiotics. The 2nd half of the cycle, after ovulation, can be variable and periods can vary. You just had a late period. But now by taking antibiotics, you can develop side effects of opportunistic infections such as fungal, c diff, resistant organisms. So just don't do it again, please.
