Thank you for your query.
If you have been treated by a qualified doctor, then please dont worry.
Sometimes, a bad urinary tract infection needs to be treated with injectable antibiotics.
They are reasonably safe, particularly in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.
you have not mentioned how many weeks pregnant you are.
Also, cefuroxime and isuxsoprine again are safe in pregnancy, in the second and third trimesters.
Improve your fluid intake and local hygiene.
recurrent urinary tract infections predispose to preterm labour.
Take care.
