Hello, i hope u can help.
I recently had minor surgery and was not given antibiotics because i am pregnant but now it does look like i need to take pennicillin (spelling ?). Is this safe to take during pregnancy?
Any advice would be most appreciated.
I am not a nurse but I believe penicillin is fine for pregnancy. In fact my sister had to take it for an infection during pg even though she is allergic to it because they believed it was the safest thing.
I was prescribed amoxycillin which I believe is penecillin based at one time because there was a possibility of pg.
Yep, some are safe and some aren't. I've had both oral and IV antibiotics whilst pg. So long as the prescribing doctor knows you are pg it'll be fine as he'll give you the type that are safe in pregnancy
