There are certain antibiotics that can be taken in pregnancy. Did you mention to that doctor that you are pregnant? If yes, then the doctor will know better what to prescribe you.

Thanks for query,
During pregnancy infection also taken care as it may give big problem to fetus.
So we should take care of both.
Medicines should be avoided during firs trimester of pregnancy,but you are having 5 months pregnancy there is no problem taking antibiotic.
Doctor keeping in mind your pregnancy has prescribed antibiotic so nothing to worry.
Ok and bye.
