Can I take the antibiotic cipro (ciprofloxacin) if I am in my first trimester of pregnancy?

Maybe: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is a category c medicine in pregnancy. This means adverse fetal effects in animals but no controlled human studies or no human/animal studies done... So, we usually use proven antibiotics with better studies or track record. Bottom line - take them if it's the only possible med that will work (i doubt it) or discuss it again with your doc. It's always smart to double check your medications. ...Read more

OBGYN gave two pills of azithromycin and 5 days ampicillin for suspected PID, 2 weeks after HSG test. Can I take these together? Is this enough?

OBGYN gave two pills of azithromycin and 5 days ampicillin for suspected PID,  2 weeks after HSG test. Can I take these together? Is this enough?

Atypical Rx for PID: Safety is not an issue; these antibiotics can be taken together. However, this is atypical treatment for PID and will not adequately treat the most common STD causes or PID, nor many other bacteria often involved. However, the situation itself is atypical. HSG rarely triggers PID, but if that's what happened, perhaps the treatment will work. But check with doc if still symptoms after 2-3 days. ...Read more
