Studies on animals show adverse effect and toxicity on fetus.
No adequate and well controlled studies done on pregnant women.
Drugs should be given only if the potential benefit outweighs the potential risk to the fetus.
FDA Pregnancy Risk Categories

 Place (not click) your mouse cursor over the bold words in the text below to receive description

 Fetal Risk  

Causes cartilage lesions of weight-bearing joints of animals exposed in utero.
No well-controlled human data but suggested possible association between use of the drug in the first trimester and congenital malformations including spina bifida, limb defects, hypospadia, inguinal hernia, eye/ear defects, heart and skeleton defects and teeth discoloration.
Reported higher rate of cesarean section for fetal distress in the pregnancies exposed to fluoroquinolones and their babies were heavier.

That is what I found... But right now you are NOT pregnant because you haven't ovulated yet sooo, it's fine to take it. But after you ovulate, I think you should NOT take it since it's category C and is particularly risky in the first trimester.

Sorry, I didn't see this sooner! I hope this helps my dear! How are u feeling? I had no idea you had uti??

Thanks cheri

Im gonna take 1000 mg of it /day to finish my dose ASAP athu my SIL told me i shud take it for 10 days to guarantee i dont get it again..but she nos nothing about my plans on getting pregnant so cant rely much on her

I'm starting to get depressed a lil I have wild emotions once min I'm happy and dancing around the place, the next im extremely sad and feel like crying..

I started having symptoms last month and thut it was related to not drinking much water but it didnt go away told my SIL she says its ITU..augh gets complicated by the second..

I got a faint positive today on my OPK btw dont know when to BD I'm so confused Glad to have U around I'm feeling lonely :(

anyways, how ru? how have u been? ready for ur IUI?  cant wait till we get our BFPs.... SSBD! :)

HI - if you have a UTI, I don't know how you can stand it, lol I always have to take the meds as soon as possible, I hate that feeling! I'm sorry you have one, take care of it, and I think Cher is right, take it so you can get some relief.  
SSBD!! Joann

Nope, he doesn't need to take anything... He is fine, don't worry.

My DD gets uti's all the time, poor thing. Im kind of a pro on uti's because of her.
I buy her otc tablets that I give her when they start coming on and we can usually control them that way, (and plenty of fluids including cranberry juice) without getting her on any antibiotics. However, when it gets bad, one needs to take the Rx to get rid of it. It can get so troublesome, feeling the urge to peee but only drops coming out and then burning... It's the worst. Also you can feel pain in your flank area.

I hope u feel better soon dear, this is no fun! Plus, we are getting so close to our ovulation and you should be feeling excited but you can't because you feel sick!

Feel better luv!
