Brief Answer: dont take anything yet Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX You have taken too much of antibiotics in the early pregnancy, in my opinion. We try to avoid antibiotics till 12-14 weeks. You have taken a lot of antibiotics for repeated UTIs. Ideally you should have been given the most sensitive one . Like nitrofuratoin. There is nothing to be done now. Certain amount of pus cells are normally seen in any sample. Your most recent culture shows 1-2 pus cells but there is no mention of pathogen. I would advise you not to take any antibiotics now. Drink plenty of water. You can take Urilyser with water as before. Cranberry juice will help. Avoid antibiotics unless your symptoms are severe.
