Anti-Biotic during pregnancy
Dear Dr.

I hope you can help. I am suffering at the moment with a bladder infection and I am 13 weeks pregnant. I went to my GP yesterday and he gave me Clamentin anti-biotics but when I looked it up on the internet they say safety in pregnancy cannot be confirmed. Can you help me? I took one yesterday after my visit but am afraid to take any more. is it safe to use or not?

Thank you.

As far as we know, it is safe in pregnancy.
