Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
Flucloxacillin is a betalactam antibiotic that is the penicillin group antibiotic.
There are several reports of unintended pregnancies with there use, so it it worth while to avoid intercourse during this period or to use an additional barrier contraception for protection.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
