Brief Answer:
Category B drug in pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
Augmentin 625 belongs to category B drug in pregnancy.
Means animal studies have not shown any adverse effects on fetus and sufficient human studies are lacking.
Doctors usually prescribe this drug in pregnancy for infections etc.
And as your wife is in third trimester of pregnancy, by this time all organs of the baby might have formed.
So, by taking all these points into consideration, no need to worry about intake of these tablets.
It won't affect the delivery also.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
May not lead to preterm labor

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Apart from causing general side effects like diarrhea, nausea etc as in general population, it may not have specific side effects in pregnancy.
Hyperactivity is a rare side effect of the drug.
So possibility of preterm labor is less.
Usually most of the drug will be eliminated in first 24 hours of intake.
So delivery may not be affected.
Take care.

I am into my 6th month of pregnancy and have few complications. I am on bed rest for rest of my pregnancy since the baby has come down and placenta has become weak. Dr has managed to stop the preterm labor and bleeding with certain injections however I have been facing itching problem around my vagina. Hence my dr has prescribed me clingen forte. Sometime After inserting the same I am facing a heavy passage of fluid from vagina. Is that normal ? Or yhis discharge is due to some other reasons ?

Hi Dr. I m 32 weeks pregnant. I have the last couple weeks had an irritable uterus with braxton hicks. I just got back from my gynecologist today and was asked to take utrogestan 100mg 3 times a day to prevent preterm labor. But when I search the web It says: Utrogestan 100mg Capsules are not a treatment for premature labour.Prescription of progesterone beyond the first trimester of pregnancy may reveal gravidic cholestasis What does this mean and what it is your opinion? Thank you,
