I'm 10 weeks pregnant and seem to have picked up a urinary tract infection. The pharmacy says I need a prescription as there are many medications I cannot take due to pregnancy.

See a GP. UTI's are very common in pregnancy. Symptoms include frequent urination, burning on urination, feeling of incomplete emptying of bladder. Burning on urination may also be caused by Candida. It is important to have a urine dipstix to confirm infection before treatment. Antibiotics which are safe in pregnancy include Zinnat, Bactrim and Macrodantin. Ensure that you drink a lot of water.
