Pregnant, frequent loose stools. flatulence, acidity. Blood test shows amoeba. Treatment?

Hi Doctor. I'm 29+2 weeks pregnant and since yesterday I've experieced frequent loose stools, flatulence, acid in the stomac, colics with cramps in legs and arms. This morning I went for a stool test and they told me it's amoeba. Because I live in the subsaharian Africa and here in the village we don't have any good doctor, I'd like advice on which medicine to take, and how often. Thanks.

Hi madam, came to know about your problem of loose motion colic's and cramps,as you are residing in rural remote area and pregnant 29+2 weeks , i want to suggest you to take plenty of fluids with electrolytes if available to you , if not than you can take sugar+salt+ lemon water 2-3 liters in a day,also take Metronidazole 400 if you have, for your cramps you may have your medicines as advised regularly in pregnancy i.e. folic acid, iron & calcium as given to all pregnant women along with these you must take a glass of milk regularly during this can also take curd & rice to control your loose motions and flatulence too.Good Luck take care, recover soon.
