How do antibiotics affect blood clotting?

In order for certain clotting factors( factors 2,7,9,and 10) to be synthesized in the liver Vit K must be present. Synthesized with the aide of our normal flora in our intestines, vit K synthesis can be compromised with the introduction of antibiotics that are generally non-discriminative towards bacteria in your body, killing both "good" and "bad" bacteria. Thus without vit k synthesis, necessary clotting factors are not synthesized either and can lead to the inability of your blood to clot as it normally would.
