Safety Of Taking Antibiotics During The Pregnancy Program?

my wife last menstruation on November 21, 2018 and on December 8, 2018 had fever and urinary pain. Then I took it to the clinic with the doctor, given the antibiotic ciprofloxacin HCI and now, December 21, I haven’t had my period yet … my question is my wife is pregnant? and if you are pregnant can the conditions be healthy? I read on the internet that ciprofloaxin is dangerous for pregnant women can cause fetal defects … I’m afraid because my wife has taken antibiotics.

Hello Lukman, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Previously you should first explain how your wife's menstrual cycle is usually so that it can be known more clearly whether your wife is experiencing menstrual delays or not. If indeed your wife is experiencing menstrual delays, you can buy a pregnancy test (test pack) and ask your wife to do a pregnancy check. Perform the examination using the first urine in the morning so that the examination results are more accurate.


If your wife is indeed pregnant, the drug ciprofloxacin is indeed classified as a category C drug, which is a drug in animal studies showing side effects in fetal animals, but there is no adequate research on humans. This class of drugs may be used if the benefits exceed the possibility of side effects. However, existing human studies show that there are no specific side effects on the fetus in pregnant women who consume ciprofloxacin during pregnancy (including those who consume in the first trimester). There was also no increased risk of birth defects in the fetus compared to the population who did not take ciprofloxacin. Therefore, for now you should not need to worry too much. During your current pregnancy planning, make sure your wife consumes enough folic acid (you may advise your wife to consume pregnancy vitamins) to prevent birth defects in the fetus.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
