    I don't want to sound too blunt but surely if it was not a serious problem they could give you the safe ones instead, and if it is a potentially serious problem then don't you think you should sort that out before becoming pregnant?!?

    Getting over an illness while pregnant is no fun!

    It depends on the infection. You can't treat everything with the safe antibiotics.

    If it's only a short course I think you will be fine. If you're still ttc or in the very early stages of pregnancy then the placenta hasn't developed so there is no crossover. The half life is about 16-22 hours, so after the last dose it would be out of your system in aprox. 6-7 days depending on your dose.

    Yeah I think I am going to wait and see if I get AF and if I do I might take it then. Bedlover - not all antibiotics treat the same sorts of infections so unfortunately sometimes the safer options can't be used

    Still not sure I will take it even if I get AF as there is no proof I have an infection they r just guessing. So frustrating.

    As someone who just lost my baby as a result of me getting septic shock (blood infection of unknown source that led to multiple organ failure), I would still say don't risk it. I am not the only person on here who has recently experienced a second trimester loss due to infection.

    Take the drugs, make sure you are well and give your baby the best chance possible. A short course of AB is nothing in the scheme of things, just to be on the safe side.
