Does anyone know about antibiotics? I'm not using the sticks (yet) to test for ovulation. My cycle is very regular, every 27-28 days, and this month our big day is on Wednesday, June 19th. I had to take a Z-pack last month and I've heard antibiotics can change when you ovulate. True of false?? Just wondering if this could be a possible stumbling block for us. Thanks and good luck to all! I hope AF is a no-show for those of you still waiting!

False. No change should be expected. Same with colds or other minor illnesses. If you're critically ill, the resultant stress response will temporarily shut down your gonadotropin axis, but unless you've undergone a very major operation or been in the ICU it's business as usual.XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)

@whitgold; my first cycle after stopping birth control was a mess, no sign of ovulation and after a couple (about 6) of weeks I started spotting and cramping, a week later AF finally came... now last month was a perfect 29 day cycle with a OPK+ right in the middle and only 1 day of light spotting and cramping on day 28. It is a little frustrating, but several of my friends experienced the same (6-10 weeks for their cycles to get back to normal) after coming of BC, and BFPs came soon (1-9 months) after. So no worries.
@frances322: it is very unlikely that taking antibiotics a month ago will influence when you ovulate this month. Only major events (illness, stress, heavy medication) which have an effect between CD1 and ovulation could potentially postpone ovulation.
@alzora: yep, sometimes the words come with the vowels in childrens books etc. but if you want to read a newspaper you just have to work out BNNH (in Hebrew script בָּנָנָה) would be banana(h). Same for Arabic e.g. TWNSYH (in Arabic script تونسية) would be Tunesi(y)a(h). Also the words are written from right to left (so actually HNNB for banana). Working out these scripts should keep you busy for your TDW I really hope this will be your last TWW in a very long time, but you might indeed be able to feel AF coming by now

@frances - I took antibiotics earlier this month and I ovulated right on cue! I was a bit paranoid the illness and medication might affect my chances of conceiving this month, but I've been told by my doctor that's not the case and I shouldn't worry!
