Yes: Stress can interfer with periods.Also,Some antibiotics hinder oestrogen production, and if this is too low then your body doesn't produce the hormones that stimulate your ovaries to release an egg, meaning no period – or a very delayed one.Also antibiotics can make birth control pills less reliable.
