Common Questions and Answers about Antibiotics pregnancy amoxicillin

antibiotics

My doctor put me on amoxicillin for 7 days because of small infection. Is it okay to be taking this while I'm pregnant.?
I always heard that you should not take any anitbiotics during your pregnancy (amoxicilin is an antibiotic). I had an infection last year and the doctor refuse to give me antibiotics and prescriped me cranberry capsules (concentrated of cranberries proven to cure cystites) just because I was TTC could have been pregnant. Of course this should depend on how big is your infection, the doctors should measure risks, if it was me I would ask this question to another doctor just to be sure.
But I also got a yeast infection after I started it but both pregnancy and antibiotics cause them so yeah!!!
Has anyone bn in antibiotics during pregnancy? If so how far along were you? Had anyone taken azithromax 250??
I was just put on amoxicillin for a dental infection. Both amoxicillin and the medication in your z-pack (I'm assuming that is what you are taking?) are both Pregnancy Category B and considered safe during pregnancy. I even specifically asked my Pharmacist and she assured me it is safe. Much better to treat the infection before it gets out of hand and you have to use a stronger (and possibly less safe) medication to address it.
Left untreated it can travel to the kidneys and cause a kidney infection that can be dangerous to both you and your child. Amoxicillin is one of the most widely prescribed antibiotics during pregnancy and has not been shown to cause any harm to a human fetus. Take the medication to clear up the infection, the last thing you want is for it to get worse.
Is it safe to take amoxicillin during pregnancy. I am 24 weeks. My dentist prescribed it, but it seemed like he had to confer with all of his colleges before writing the prescription. What do think?
I was on plenty of antibiotics while I was pregnant. I delivered a healthy baby. Take your meds.
i've never heard of a man's antibiotics interfering with a woman's birth control but when in doubt it never hurts to use condoms for a few days
I know that there is always a possibility of pregnancy, but I wanted to know how much a couple of amoxicillin pills would affect her birth control. considering her birth control and withdrawal(which i know isn't completely effective), how likely is it that she is pregnant?
I called my gyno and spoke to the nurse there I asked her was amoxicillin safe to take during pregnancy (I am 26 weeks) and after asking me why did i get priscribed that and few other questions, she said "Amoxicillin is OK" Still not so convincing. So I'm better now, of course, and still have more then half the bottle left. I am nervous to keep taking the pills over and over, especially now that I don't need it anymore to make me feel better.
NO!!!!!
Amoxicillin is said to be safe during pregnancy. It is often prescribed for first trimester UTIs.. Ideally, they wouldnt want yo uto have to take antibotics.. but if your doctor is prescribing it for you it is because the risk assocaited with taking them is less than the risks associated with letting it go untreated.
I recently had an ear infection (June 27) and was prescribed a 10 day round of amoxicillin trihydrate (500mg) and ear drops (ciprophloxacin/dexamethasone). I was on my period/placebo pills from June 30-July 6. I took the amoxicillin the best I could every eight hours three times a day but ended up having to go two days over and took one amoxicillin pill on July 7 and one amoxicillin pill on July 8. July 7 is when I started my new pack of birth control pills.
I'm freaking out because I found out a 4 weeks I was pregnant, then at 5 I got strep throat. Dr. prescribed Amoxicillin and I took it. Now, looking back I'm really really afraid I may have hurt my baby (I'm 9 weeks now) I understand that I had to take it or it the strep could have hurt the baby. Now, to top it all off, I got a yeast infection from the antibiotics and I don't know what to do. I'm mortified at the idea of taking another medicine. HELP!!!!!!!!!!
She is on the pill but has been on strong antibiotics 500mg (amoxicillin) for about 2 weeks leading up to that point. How safe do you think we are in regards to pregnancy? I understand that any time you have sex, you take the chance of pregnancy but just wanted to know people's thoughts under these specific circumstances? Do you think the chances are good/bad etc?
Today (Tuesday) I went to the doctor and have a sinus infection and she prescribed an antibiotic (amoxicillin) and an over-the-counter (pseudoephedrine) for me to take. I know we should use a backup method while I am taking the pills, but I just want to know if having the sex we did on Friday night and it being "unprotected" will mean I will get pregnant if I start taking the antibiotics tonight/tomorrow.
I'll be 12 weeks on Thursday and I'm a bit apprehensive about taking Amoxicillin. The doc prescribed 875mg twice daily for 10 days. He says that it's relatively safe. What does everyone think? If I don't take it, could this cause an upper respiratory infection?
I was prescribed ciprofloxacin for a UTI today, and am a little nervous about taking it because it says "It did not cause birth defects but it did appear to increase the risk for miscarriages when given to pregnant rabbits." what?!?! My Ob suggested it, and the pharmacist said it doesn't sound like it will be an issue and if the OB suggested it, then it's probably fine.. Ughh I hate taking medicine. Did anyone else use oral antibiotics during early pregnancy and turn out okay?!
depends on which IUD....if it's the copper one, no effect. and even if it's the one that releases hormones the effect should be minimal because not only does the IUD use hormones to prevent pregnancy but the placement of the IUD itself can actually affect ovulation and the chances of pregnancy.. but the truth about risk of pregnancy due to taking antibiotics concurrently is iffy.
I forgot to take my pill that night, and then the next day I had to take four amoxicillin because I was getting my wisdom teeth out that day. Is there a chance that I got be pregnant? People have been telling me that antibiotics completely cancel out birth control but, I'm skeptical. My period is supposed to start in four days.. should I go ahead and take a pregnancy test?? Someone help meeeeee.
Have heard of Amoxicillin being used. I have only had to use antibiotics on a couple of my females post-whelping. Depends on what you are treating and maybe no treatment is necessary. Please understand that none of us are Vets here. Under these circumstances, you should rely on the advice of a Vet as to what antibiotic would be the safest to use. There can always be a risk in pregnant animals.
I am 10 weeks and 3 days into my first pregnancy and I was just diagnosed with a UTI yesterday. I have been prescribed 500mg of amoxicillin to be taken 3 times a day for a week. I am worried about the potential of a yeast infection and was curious if it is safe to take multi-enzyme digestive enzymes, which are 100% vegetarian based. I know the benefits of eating yogurt, but to be very honest, it is making my stomach turn over the idea of eating it now. It is one of my new food aversions.
She is on the pill but has been on strong antibiotics 500mg (amoxicillin) for about 2 weeks. How safe do you think we are in regards to pregnancy?
My husband was on that for the same thing. We were told not to expect anything in the way of pregnancy until he was off of it. The DR said that his infection may have played a part in why we hadn't conceived yet. We were in month number 8 at the time, and wouldn't you know it- that's when we got pregnant. Wow, I guess I made a short answer long here. Sorry about that. I guess, based on my own experince, that the answer would be no. It shouldn't affect your ability to conceive. Good luck!
Hi there! I know amoxicillin is OK, sudafed was also on our OK list, I got those as well. As for Bactrim I'm not sure. On-line it says "Bactrim is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not known whether Bactrim will harm an unborn baby. This medication affects folic acid in your body, which is necessary for the normal development of a baby. Do not take Bactrim without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant.
I had several during pregnancy with DD because of all the antibiotics I took for my kidney infections.....I used the monistat cream and I was fine. I wouldn't use the pill either. I'm pretty sure you can just have her use the over-the-counter creams and it'll clear up right away, it always did for me. Also have her eat LOTS of yogurt while she's taking the amoxicillin it'll keep the yeast infection from coming back/getting worse.
one of my friends developed a kidney infection while she was newly pregnant and then again when she was later into her pregnancy both times, she was on morphine in the hospital and she was also on antibiotics throughout her pregnancy. She had a healthy little girl who is doing great. I think that the only thing that you can do is ask questions, if they think you should be on it, take it, if you are nervous get a second opinion. Good luck to you.
