In brief: Antibiotic

I'm not sure I understand your question.
Why would the antibiotic not be safe? you have a sinus infection and you were prescribed an antibiotic. If you think you may be pregnant, then talk to your doctor. Which do you think would be riskier for an embryo, a raging bacterial infection or a few days of antibiotics? I suggest practicing safe sex and taking care of your health.
