Good evening, I missed my period for 2days after having unprotected sex, but my period came after taking augmentin for uti. Could I be pregnant?

Pregnancy unlikely: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

Sounds like teething: The symptoms you describe sound like your son's 2nd molars are coming in. I do not know how much your son weighs, so I cannot comment on whether the Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is safe or not. Half a teaspoon of salt in a tall glass of warm water is a great rinse for swelling. Rinse frequently and spit, don't swallow. Talk to your physician or dentist about the proper antibiotic and what dose to take. ...Read more
