Missed period

Hi

I am currently on the pill (Mercilon) and have been so for the last 9 years. I have never missed my period until now. Can there be any other reason except pregnancy ? I have been on medication this month due to illness (pulmison 20mg-7days). Could this have affected it?

Dear Lucy
Cortisone could influence menstruation - I am just a bit worried that the antibiotics you may have taken have made your Mercilon ineffective. I think you should just do a pregnancy test if nothing happens for the next 3-4 days.
