Hi

Ideally antibiotics should be restricted during pregnancy.However,augmentin in minimal doses for very short period of treatment is ok.Long term use isnt recommended.

My ENT cultured Proteus Mirabilis from my sinuses about 3 months ago. I took antibiotics. Was re-cultured six weeks ago. They cultured Stenotrophomonus Maltophilia. Took 6 weeks of doxycycline for that. Went back two days ago. They have now cultured e-coli. Holy cow! seems like the bugs are just waiting for the other bugs to get killed so that they can grow. What is going on? Took Microbiology in the spring and we were working with all of these bacteria. Did I somehow get infected then?
