Thrombocytopenia 4 mths ago after taking several doses of bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). Thrown in remission after 3 days decadron. Plt. In 200s n holding. Pregnancy safe?

Check: with your doctor. It is also concerning me that you have not listed bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) or sulfa as an allergy. The thrombocytopenia is probably drug related and should never take it again. Check with your hematologist for advice in this regard prior to getting pregnant. Best wishes. ...Read more

Had sex on the last day of my period, friday. How long should I wait to take a pregnancy test? I am on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) but i also started bactrim tuesday.

Not pregnant: First, the chance you could get pregnant from having sex on the last day of your period is vanishingly small. Second, you are protected by yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). Some doctors recommend a second method of protection while on Bactrim because some antibiotics induce cyp3a4, a liver enzyme that breaks down yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol). However, neither sulfamethoxazole nor trimethoprim--the two antibiotics in bactrim--are enzyme inducers. ...Read more
