Can i take norethindrone 4 days after taking plan b?

Can i take norethindrone  4 days after taking plan b?

Yes: Taking Plan B implies you are trying to prevent a pregnancy, so starting the progestin neta or Norethindrone makes sense. However, get a pregnancy test in 2 weeks to make sure there was not a failure or a pregnancy. High doses of neta can alter female genital formation if you were pregnant (in the 1960's with 10, 000 mcg doses this was the risk, modern pills use only 1000 mcg typically). ...Read more

Prescribed Macrobid for UTI symptoms, culture came back negative. Should i stop taking the antibiotics? I'm on day 4 of 7. I am 4 weeks pregnant.

Prescribed Macrobid for UTI symptoms, culture came back negative. Should i stop taking the antibiotics? I'm on day 4 of 7. I am 4 weeks pregnant.

Furadantin (nitrofurantoin): This compound is not known to cause problems during pregnancy. The issue is whether or not you actually have a uti, and would suggest you get the results of the urinalysis (which was hopefully done along with the culture). Urine cultures are seldom negative in the presence of bacterial infection, unless the infection is involving areas above the bladder. Would need more info. Call your doctor. ...Read more
