thank you for your query.
At 28 weeks, you can safely take the antibiotics ( ciprofloxacin or amikacin ) as indicated by your vaginal swab culture.
Untreated vaginal infections predispose to preterm labour, infection to the baby and the membranes and other complications.
Excessive mucus secretion is normal during pregnancy, but could very well be due to your infection.
Take care,
