Pregnancy & Tonsilitis
Good morning,

I am now 5 months pregnant and have tonsilitis. I would prefer to go through my pregnancy taking as few drugs as possible - can this negatively affect the baby if the tonsilitis goes untreated?

Thank you,

Your tonsillitis needs treatment. There are many antibiotics which can be used safely in pregnancy.
