Hi everyone, I had a missed miscarriage found out at 11 weeks baby had been dead for several weeks prior and had a d&c to remove my baby 7 weeks ago. Last night while talking to my neighbour she mentioned that antibiotics can cause birth defects, I was on antibiotics when we found out I was pregnant for a chest infection. I had let the dr know I thought I might be pregnant. I can't find the answer on the web, all I can find is taking antibiotics after miscarriage, so I thought I would try one here, has anyone heard that antibiotics can cause miscarriage or that taking them in early pregnancy can cause defects that can cause miscarriage? It doing my head in, that I could have caused it by taking the antibiotics?
