Thanks for writing to Health Care magic
Urine infections are more common during pregnancy due to several reasons. Most important thing is to take plenty of fluids. It is also important that the infection is treated properly and completely. The infection if untreated may lead to kidney infection(nephritis). So it is important to treat it. Treatment shjould take place under the supervision of a good doctor. If untreated the urine infection may cause small baby and early labour. So without worrying get treated for the infection by a qualified professional. Also donot use over the counter drugs
Thanks and regards

Dear customer,

You have NOT mentioned the drugs which she has been prescribed for the urinary infection.Some of the drugs are safe in pregnancy without any adverse side effect of monther or the foetus.

The doctor should know that she is pregnant and he/she will prescribed only the drugs which are considered to be safe in pregnancy.

She should take enough fluid and water , cranberry juice and the drugs prescribed by the doctor.She should also have a close follow up with the doctor.

Thank you
