You can take antibiotics at any point in pregnancy. Being under the physical stress of a UTI would be more detrimental to your TTC odds than taking a prescribed antibiotic would.

Check with your doctor. There are some that are better for possible pregnancy. Amoxicillin is fine, for example.

I am sure there are antibiotics safe for pregnant women. Otherwise we’d have a lot more dead pregnant ladies. A UTI is nothing to screw around with, if it gets into your kidneys, it can get infinitely worse.

Im pregnant and just had a UTI infection and my doctor prescribed antibiotics and I’ve been just fine, make sure you let them know that you might be pregnant since that may affect which antibiotics you should take.

I had to take an antibiotic at 7 weeks, and at 10 weeks for UTIs.  You’re good!

At 2DPO, a fertilized egg wouldn’t have even implanted yet.  Even if it did, you don’t share a blood stream right away, so antibiotics would be unlikely to have any effect.  UTIs are very common during pregnancy, and there are antibiotics that are considered safe to take, (I had a kidney stone and mild infection during my pregnancy).  If you are concerned, mention that you’re TTC and would prefer pregnancy-safe antibitoics.

Amoxicillin and nitrofurantoin are safe during pregnancy if you’re concerned.

when i’ve had uti’s they usually ask if i’ve had unprotected sex since my last period. if i have, they will do a pregnancy test just to be on the safe side (even if it was too early to tell), so that they can give me the appropriate medication.

if it helps, i was given macrobid to treat a uti when i was about 5-6 weeks pregnant.

You need to get medicine ASAP if you think you have a UTI!

If you are worried just check if the antibiotics are safe in pregnancy. If you definitely have a full blown uti, it’s not going to go away by it’s self and needs treatment. If it’s not treated you are at risk of getting kidney infection or even sepsis, which then could mean hospital admission! Many ladies get uti’s in pregnancy and are treated with antibiotics, and end up with healthy, happy babies.

BunnyJaques:  Lots of good advice from previous posters. About half the time I’ve gotten a UTI I’ve been able to get rid of it on my own my drinking TONS of cranberry juice and water. The other times I needed antibiotics and waiting probably just made it worse. You could always go to town on the cranberry juice until you get a doctor’s appointment- it certainly won’t make it worse, anyway. Good luck!

I had a UTI recently and I got a prescription antibiotic that was safe for pregnancy. It’s called Keflex. I had to take it for 7 days every 8 hours, but the symptoms cleared up in 3 days.

I definitely think if it is needed then sorting out your own health is beneficial to you and the potential baby. My friend had UTIs up until 16 weeks. If you are prone to them then it might affect you when you are pregnant. 


ETA: Thinking I remember that you’re in UK, yes you can get cranberry juice here. Ocean Spray is the big branded one.
