Better not to: Levoquin is a pregnancy category c drug, which means it is unclear whether or not it is safe in pregnancy. This is because of a possible effect on bones and joints of fetuses. If you think you could be pregnant and are taking levoquin, call your health provider to see if you can take an alternative antibiotic.

Yes: It is odd to take abx during sex, but you can get pregnant while taking them :d if you think you may be pregnant, tell your prescriber or OB or pharmacist asap, as this changes the risks of the med, and they may suggest you stop it (but don't do it on your own).
