1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
Generally we try to avoid using trimethoprim in pregnancy, especially if there is another antibiotic that would do the same job.
Sometimes though trimethoprim is the best antibiotic choice for certain infections. It is safer earlier in pregnancy than later.

In brief: Ask You Doctor
You should never rely on general internet questions for such an important question.
Obviously for a life threatening infection is is O.K. Its been around a long time, but that does not mean it should be used casually.
