Over the past month and a bit, I have had

Patient : Over the past month and a bit, I have had a series of infections. I've managed to get candida (yeast) in the back of my throat, candida "down there," as well as tonsillitis, and strep throat. I have been to the doctors multiple times, and was treated with 3 different types of oral antibiotics. FINALLY the infections cleared up, and I'm on the road to recovery (apart from this spring cold that I am currently plagued with.) I'm still taking one of the oral antibiotics, and today I noticed that my period is 3 days late. I've heard that antibiotics can affect your period. Is this true??? Is there something wrong with me? Should I go back to the doctors? Also, It is highly unlikely that I am pregnant. I have never had sex. I'm concerned that, (although my boyfriend didn't ejaculate) he may have touched me with hands that were possibly contaminated with pre-ejaculate. Again, Pregnancy is extremely unlikely, but not entirely impossible. Thanks.
