Thanks for posting your query.
Even after taking antibiotics if you have lost your voice, it means either you are not taking it in a proper dose or not taking proper antibiotic.
If you are not allergic to peniciliin or cephalosporin group, these are safe in pregnancy.
So consult your doctor for further evaluation & take proper treatment under his guidance.
I hope your query has been answered.
