Zithromax Z-pack and TTC Anybody with any knowlege????

I'm sorry to post again but I just got a call from the dr. office that the medicine they prescribed is Zithromax Z-pack.  Does anyone know if I can ttc while on this med???  My target date to ttc is the 6th-12th and I am supposed to start this antibiotic today.  Will there be any harm if this is in my system and I conceive this month? I don't want to intentionally cause harm if I take this and get pregnant while it's in my system. We've been trying to conceive now since my m/c in Nov. and I REALLY don't want to skip this month because of an antibiotic if I don't have to.

The is no harm in using a z pac during ttc or pregnancy.
It is simply a strong course of antibiotics.  It is healthier for you than a possible infection you may have.  Don't worry about taking it.

That is EXACTLY what I wanted to hear and exactly what I was hoping was TRUE.  I read that it is a class "B" drug and that it is safe DURING pregnancy, but I didn't know if that made any difference if you were already pregnant or if it hurt if it was in your system at the time of conception.  I'm so glad there are ladies here who have so much knowledge.  I just talked to a nurse and she said we should use a condom for the next two weeks!!  I was CRUSHED!!!!

Yikes!  I've taken it before with no side effects!!  Sorry to hear that, but thanks so much for sharing.  Seriously,... I do appreciate any and all feedback be it good OR bad! :)  Thanks so much.

That IS weird because she mentioned something about being on the pill and she said.. "of course if you're trying you're not using any protection but you need to use a condom".  She added that if I were on the pill I would need to use protection because there is a risk of getting pregnant on the pill.  Well... we knew that already! :)  I really want to try this month....both my hubby and my b-days are on the 8th and that's during our target week so maybe this time will be a little more fun and feel less like a chore!!

Are you still doing good?

The only thing I hate about the z pac is that it gives me a bad case of the 'scoots'.  you know, pooping A LOT, and very runny...yuck!
Good luck TTC this month!

thats weird...maybe she misunderstood you and thought you told her you were trying not to conceive. antibiotics will make ocp's not work and it takes a couple weeks to build back up in your system.

I took it while pg, and had no problems. I don't know about while ttc, but I would assume it's ok.
