Hi, welcome to HCM I am Dr Das
As you have an urinary tract infection, so it is necessary to take antibiotics. But in pregnancy we have to use drugs with caution. Augmentine is such drug which has no bad effect in pregnancy. And, it has some side effects like metallic test, gastric problem, etc. There is no instant remedy for it. You have to complete the course.
And one more thing you have to take more water.
