Is Flagyl safe during the second trimester? Will it cause fetal loss? 20 weeks pregnant and was diagnosed with BV. Is this medicine okay to take?

Is Flagyl safe during the second trimester? Will it cause fetal loss? 20 weeks pregnant and was diagnosed with BV. Is this medicine okay to take?

What does safe mean?: Presumably your doc told you to take it because you have BV. The most dangerous time of a pregnancy is the first 1/3. That is when all the organs are being laid down. After that they get bigger. Everything in medicine involves a risk/benefit analysis. What benefits do I hope to gain versus what risks am I taking. Nothing in life is risk free but yr doc thinks the benefit out ways the risks. ...Read more
