OBGYN 's  Response
As far as research studies have been done, there is no clear study on pregnant women in the use of cefpodoxime and ofloxacin. Yet, there are no known teratogenic effects so far,i.e., birth defects in babies of patients treated with these drugs during pregnancy. So, I do not think you need to worry about complications, but, I advice you to be cautious and inform your gynecologist about the drug intake, and if necessary take the tests to rule out any fetal malformations. Good luck.
