So, I've taken fluconazole when pregnant for yeast infections and it is commonly prescribed during pregnancy and has no pregnancy at the regular dose during the second trimester.  During the first, at higher doses of 400 to 800 mg a day, you shouldn't take it but you should be fine now. Flagyl is pregnancy category B. That means it was not shown to affect a fetus in limited studies. It's also pretty commonly given during pregnancy.  While it would be rare, they don't want the bacteria from BV to travel up the reproductive tract.  So, talk to your doctor but I think you are probably fine with those medications.
