There are certain antibiotics that can be taken in pregnancy. Did you mention to that doctor that you are pregnant? If yes, then the doctor will know better what to prescribe you.

Doctor keeping in mind your pregnancy has prescribed antibiotic so nothing to worry.
Ok and bye.

My wife experienced two missed abortions in last two years. Now she is pregnant(13 weeks). First Doctor suggested to take Hibor 2500 IU every day as soon as pregnancy is detected and taking Hibor2500(low molecular weight heparin) every day from last two months. The 13th week scan shows baby growth is very good. We consulted another doctor to whether to take Hibor 2500 injection daily or not. The second doctor suggested to stop Hibor and to take Ecosprin 75 mg tab daily. Which one(Hibor 2500 or Ecosprin 75 mg) is safe?.

hi, my wife is 8 weeks pregnant & she has been having persistent temperature of around 37.0-37.3 since last one week or so. We consulted both the GP & gynaecologist. Both have recommended a paracetamol only if temperature goes beyond 37.5. But I am still concerned :(. Has anybody faced similar issue ? Thanks PK
