Can Penicillin Stop Your Period
Possibly if on BCP's: Taking antibiotics alters the absorption of birth control pills (the estrogen and progesterone) through your intestine and consequently if you are on ocp's it indeed can alter your cycle. If a person is not on birth control pills then it is very unlikely that the penicillin will change your cycle. ...Read more
I've been on the shot for 10 months, getting it every 3 months, and I took penicillin for a week & got my period. Why? Is the shot no longer effectiv?
If its Depo-Provera: You need to identify what "shot" you are talking about. A guess would be Depo-Provera [Depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA)] for birth control or other gynecologic problem which does have to be repeated every 12 weeks. Penicillin won't affect the action of Depo-Provera but it's possible whatever you were treating with the penicillin had some effect. You had your period cause the drug wore off. ...Read more

Vomiting: Get a pregnancy test. Get your doc to write for Flonase to use at night, the steroid turns your post nasal drip into an anti inflammatory. Dink electrolyte fluid, 2 Aleve 2x per day and zantac generic at 150 mg. If you are 12 weeks pregnant the worst of the nausea is behind you. You will get past it but do the basics and see if your pregnant; if not it is unsealed to your tonsils. ...Read more
Generally ok: I think what you are asking is if you had an allergic reaction to one of these is it safe to take the other. It turns out that although cephalosporins like Cefzil (cefprozil) are related to penicillins the evidence for cross reactivity was inadequately substantiated. If you had a very severe reaction you could be skin tested for allergy to penicillin. ...Read more
Can penicillin be administered through an IV in a time period of less than 48 hours for treatment of strep infection?
Confusing question: Penicillin can be administered to people iv. Treatment in this fashion would not achieve the sustained blood levels of antibiotic for the recommended 10 days needed to kill the germ and stop formation of antibodies that could cause complications. A single dose if long acting penicillin given into both buttocks can do the job if the patient is willing. It keeps blood levels up ...Read more
I took mdma while on penicillin then took clarithromycin 2.5 weeks later. Will this delay a girls period?
No: But if you had unprotected sex while on the mdma it might. Chronic drug abuse causes many problems with women's reproductive endocrinology, but one time use of penicillin, biaxin (clarithromycin) or mdma would not likely cause any problems. Mdma is an increasingly more dangerous drug, with impure forms like"molly" causing death and severe complications like seizures and brain damage. Put away the toys! ...Read more

Hi can being an pennicilin effect my period im almost a week late which is not normal I have cramp and a shooting pain on my right side?
Late "period"?: At age 30, a late onset of a period can mean pregnancy. Penicillin does not affect the onset of a period. Obtain a serum HCG test to be certain you are not pregnant from your healthcare provider. A sharp pain in your side with cramps can also be suggestive of a pregnancy in your tube, so do not delay in getting the test and an exam if it is positive. ...Read more

What happens if you discover that the infection is viral can you stop taking the penicillin before the 10 days have passed?
Nothing happens: If the infection for sure is due to a virus, stopping penicillin or other antibiotics won't be a problem, and of course would reduce the possibility of side effects from the antibiotic. But check first with the doctor who prescribed it, to be sure it's a virus without a superimposed bacterial infection. ...Read more
NO: Tonsil stones are a mechanical problem which has to do with accumulation of debris in the pits (crypts) of tonsils.

Usually, there is no role for antibiotics in the treatment of stones. ...Read more

Bad odor with a discharge, no pain or anything. And a bath and feminine products don't stop the smell. I started taking penicillin v, will it help?
Bacterial vaginosis?: The main cause of strong vaginal odor, often with discharge, is bacterial vaginosis -- an overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria. Trichomonas, an STD, also does this; and other STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia are more common in BV. Feminine products or penicillin won't help and might make BV worse, and can screw up STD diagnosis. Treatment is available -- stop the penicillin and see your doctor. ...Read more

Took penicillin VK 4xday X6days. Every day had chills, joint pain, sore throat and Ill feeling. Dr advised to stop taking. How long til I feel better?
Ill feeling: I really need more information to answer this question appropriately. I am not sure why you were on the antibiotics in the first place. Maybe you had a virus and you will get better soon. If you are not feeling better you will need to get on a nasal steroid to help the sore throat and the ill feeling. Take some Motrin for the joint pain. See how you feel in the next few days. Good luck! ...Read more
