Urizone (3 questions in one!)
Hi Doc

20 weeks pregnant with twins (high risk pregnancy) but all goes well. Except, I have this urinary track infection that JUST WON'T clear!!!!! Have been on 2 doses of medication (last one was Macrodantin). Dr now gave a sachet of Urizone (3g) - one sachet only. When I read more about this medication, the effects on pregnancy has not been determined. Your opinion on this? I haven't taken it yet, waiting for a 2nd opinion (one can never be too careful).

He also gave me a vaginal cream (A-Por) which does leave me with me a burning sensation after applying. Normal?

I heard one should eat lots of yoghurt and drink cranberry juice, but is there anything else I can eat/drink to help my body getting rid of this infection?

Cranberry juice may help but you need the antibiotics. A once off dose should be okay.
