Possibly: not usual; however any mediciation can alter your cycle-rarely amoxicilliun.
Dr. Gerard Honore

Not the antibiotic: Antibiotics do not affect your period. The amoxicillin did not make your period late. It is not entirely clear whether they affect birth control pill effectiveness, although it is common to recommend using a backup method in that situation. Good wishes.

A 45-year-old member asked:

Can women go on birth control even though their mother has had breast cancer?

Yes: Bcp use is not associated with any significant incidence of breast cancer regardless of risk factors, however, certain breast cancers can grow in response to estrogen use. It is advised to begin cancer screening 10 years before your mother was first diagnosed with breast cancer. This should include yearly physician exam and mammography, ultrasound, and/or mri, depending on age and risk factors.

A 24-year-old female asked:

28 weeks pregnant, muscle spasm in left ring and middle fingers. Feels like an eyelid twitch?

Doctor can evaluate: If finger muscle twitching lasts only a day, there may not be a problem. If symptoms recur, or if one's hand is numb, weak, swollen, or discolored, there may be too much pressure (constriction or swelling) inside the wrist. If so, one should see a primary care doctor or a hand surgeon, in case quick treatment is needed to prevent nerve damage at the wrist. Pregnancy often causes hands to swell.

Had anal sex the day I ovulated. Was on birth control and used condom. Condom broke so took Plan B 5 hours after. Could I still be pregnant?

Depends: During sexual activity there are many points when sperm containing sexual fluids can leak & contaminate fingers or end up at your vaginal opening apart from the main event. If none of this fluid had access to your vagina, you can't get pregnant from sex using an alternative site.
