well i was sick for just over a week with a really bad cold and a fever and my period was late but I'm not pregnant so I guess it happens..

It's more likely that you are sick and missed your period because you are pregnant. Take a home test or go see a doctor to be sure.

When I was sick one time, my period was really light, almost spotting. I guess it's possible. If your diet has changed in any way, that might affect it too

Maybe. It happened mostly when I was pregnant and feeling sick, but I do remember a couple times where that happened.

Yes, being ill can impact your menstrual cycle.

If you're ill around the time of ovulation your body may delay or skip ovulation in order to avoid you becoming pregnant at a time when your body could not cope, thus in turn menstruation would also be delayed or skipped. There are many other reasons for this, even travel can cause disruption to your menstrual cycles, and sometimes cycles are longer without any obvious cause.

As long as it's a one off there's no reason to be concerned, but if you go over three months without a period see your doctor just to be sure that there is nothing wrong with you.

Can antibiotics delay your period if you are on birth control?

I am assuming that because your were on antibiotics you were sick. If this is so, it is the sickness that will delay your period. With some pills the antibiotics will also make the pill ineffective, so if you had sex in this time you could be pregnant. My guess is your period will be late or delayed because you were sick.You can miss a period on the birth control pill.A few antibiotics can reduce the efficacy of the pill and cause break-through bleeding or allow ovulation. In your case, with antibiotics starting toward the end of the cycle, they are probably not the problem. Contact your health care provider for advice if you miss your next period. Take a pregnancy test.

I wouldn't worry about it to much unless you go a few months without your period and you know that you aren't pregnant. Sometimes different things can cause you to miss your period. A few things that can interrupt your cycle are stress, hormones, being sick, ect. Just wait it out and see if you start next month, if not then make an appointment to see your family doctor.
