My doctor prescribed me cefuroxime and chlorquinaldol-promestrine in treating bacterial vaginosis.Could these be harmful to an early pregnancy , because i may be pregnant of 1 week?

I have gained weight due to Cefuroxime Axetile Torfur and I need to lose it fast. I exercise and have diet control. But no result. I need to lose Fat.
