Can you take biaxin (clarithromycin) & clomid? My husband & I are on biaxin (clarithromycin) and scheduled for IUI next week. Will this affect sperm or egg quality?

In brief: Should be OK

Biaxin (clarithromycin) is an antibiotic that has not been shown to have adverse effects on sperm or egg quality.
It is a "category c" for pregnancy, which means it has not been proven to be dangerous but also has not been proven to be safe, so discuss how long you need to be on this medication with your doctor, in the hope that you will get pregnant next week! good luck!
