What antibiotics are you referring to? They differ greatly in their potential effects on the developing fetus. Go and discuss this with an OB/GYN doctor and if you want to become pregnant - best of luck.

Menses


Antibiotics will generally not affect your period, but the infection you are treating may delay your period. If you think you may be pregnant go and get urine test strips from the pharmacy and test yourself. If you are negative and still have not gotten your period, test yourself again in 7-10 days.

Congestion


Congestion can cause temporary hearing loss. You may not need antibiotics if you are getting over your cold by yourself. You could try sinus irrigation and gargling. Perhaps an antihistamine could help, or even a dose/spray of Afrin? Pregnancy related water retention can also increase swelling everywhere. You may want to cut back on salt and drink hot water with lemon juice.

ETD


Your eustachian tubes may be blocked due to the sinus congestion. Saline nose spray, warm compresses to your face and ear. Since you are pregnant try to avoid oral medications. It will resolve.

USE A BACKUP


You are correct that some antibiotics may decrease how effective the pill is. This means you have a higher risk of pregnancy. You should use a backup method like condoms. If you think you may be pregnant consult you md asap

See a dentist


You first need to see your dentist to determine the source of your pain. Then your dentist and OB will talk to determine what course of treatment is right for you at your stage of pregnancy. Personally, I would extract the tooth if you are in your second trimester. Please go to the dentist for treatment.

Sorry to hear about the pain. See a dentist or oral surgeon to have the wisdom tooth looked at. Amoxil antibiotics usually is safe in pregnancy. However, your dentist will consult with your OB/GYN before any medications are prescribed. If the wisdom tooth needs to be extracted usually this will be performed in the 2nd preferably 3 rd trimester. Good luck

Bv has been associated with preterm labor. That is why it is important to treat it. If oral and vaginal metronidazole is not working, start taking a strong probiotic with billions of lactobacillus. It is over the counter
