I think you've summed it up yourself: the antibiotics have been rough on me.
If it's been rough on you in one or more areas, it's going to affect your plumbing and all its connections thereof as well.
Don't forget, that the body at work - when it's in good health - is a work of wonder, in all its aspects.
Wait until after 2 weeks after you're done with the antibiotics, and then re-evaluate.
