Nervous, please help

I have been taking Yaz for approximately 5 months and my period has been pretty normal ever since. When I was not on birth control my period was sometimes all over the place. The past month (October) I got prescribed Fioricet for my tension headaches and was told by my pharmacist that it would interfere with my birth control. About a week after taking this medication I had sex and a condom was used. A few days after this I got strep throat and was perscribed ammoxicillan, which I was again told would interfere with my birthcontrol. Tomorrow my period will be two weeks late. I took a pregnancy test when my period was 4 days late and then again when it was a week late. Both test came back negative. I noticed a clear, almost sticky discharge last week one day and it made me somewhat nervous. As much as I don't think I am pregnant, I cannot stop thinking about the possibility that I am. I am currently 4 hours away from my regular gyn and its been difficult to get a hold of anyone to answer my questions. I have not started taking my birth control for this month and I don't want to until I know that I am FOR SURE not pregnant. I plan on taking another test tomorrow. I guess basically my question is does anyone think that my medications have interfered with my cycle??? Thanks

Yes. Stress and sickness can cause your cycles to be late. Best thing to do it wait another week or so and retest and if still negative request a blood test. But at this point if you were pregnant and 2 weeks late you should be getting a positive on a pregnancy test.

It sounds like the interference of all the medications is what is causing your period delay! The sticky cervical mucous you may be having may mean that you're ovulating NOW. So unless you've had sex within the past 5 days or plan to within the next 5 days, I think it's safe to say you can continue your birth control. I believe you have to wait until you do start your period before taking the first pill, though.
