hello..ofloxacin( group flouroquinlones) should be used during pregnancy only if the benefit outweighs the risk to the fetus. It considered category C. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy; surveillance studies have not reported an increased risk of major human birth defects. Still you should repeat the mistake. always take prescribed medications only ,more specially during pregnancy. Dont worry;wishing you all the best :)
