    read the little bit of paper that comes with them before you take them. i was prescribed antib's at around 10 weeks that really could have harmed the baby if i hadn't read the leaflet and gone to the early pregnancy unit for a replacement...

    Or check with your pharmacist. They are usually very clued up on these things, and pick up on the little slip ups the GPs might make!

    Thanks all for your replies. I've checked with pharmacist and midwife and they both say perfectly fine!! Apparently its a lot worse to take nothing and let the infection get worse.

    It's good to know that lots of other ladies have taken them too.
