I'm 39 weeks and 5 days pregnant and I took nitrofurantoin mono cap 100mg twice at once by accident. What will happen? When should I take the next one
At 39 wks 5 days: Please direct all questions to your doc, you should be fine, I would tell u to do the next one 12 hours later and also if you were my pt you would have already been delivered or would induce you at 40 weeks, the ideal time to deliver is 39-40 weeks, too many bad things can happen once u go past your due date and u have to get increased monitoring, your baby better off outside than in!

Can a UTI antabiotics affect implantation? Idk if I may be pregnant & I have a UTI I got nitrofurantoin generic for macrobid
Unlikely: Many things are possible in life, but it is unlikely for the typical antibiotics used for a urinary tract infection to have an affect on the natural course of conception, implantation, and starting of a pregnancy. Because many things are possible in life, the answer to the question, "Can this happen...", is often yes... which is why the real question should be, "How likely is it that.? "
Also, I'm 37 weeks 2 days pregnant and prescribed nitrofurantoin. I've read not to take it at 38 weeks and above. Am I too close or is it safe to take?
Ask your OB MD: You need to ask your present treating OB MD this question, who will be able to give you the why and what for.
Don't self medicate: Did the physician who prescribed the medication know that you are pregnant? Are you self medicating with antibiotics that were prescribed for a previous infection? Please clear any and all medications with your OBGyn before taking them.See 1 more doctor answer
