Pregnant having diarrhoea. Taking natural treatment for diarrhoea, UTI. Cure?

I am going on my 11th week of pregnancy and have diarrhea due to a uti . I have no symptoms of a uti. The only reason I know it is a uti is because the same thing happened a few months ago...had diarrhea that got worse and went to the doctors and they told me I had a uti. I was flabbergasted because I had no symptoms. Anyway now that I am pregnancy I do not whatsoever want to take antibiotics . Ever since I began having the diarrhea I have been treating both uti and diarrhea naturally. Any advise would help thanks.

during pregnancy we should not neglect any type of infection,
as UTI and/or diarrhea can lead to premature uterine contractions and can also affect the general health, better to use antibiotics as suggested by your doctor because benefits over weigh the risks here,
usually your doctor might have recommended you the antibiotics which are considered as relatively safe in pregnancy.
for more details on UIT you can read my article,
take care.
