Our expert says:
The treatment protocol that you have followed thus far is absolutely fine and it is very unlikely that the antibiotics would have interfered with your treatment. However the recent infection with glandular fever would be a need for some conservative management and it would be unwise for you to conceive within the next month or two. This is because the immune system is still undergoing significant changes and with a pregnancy at this stage this would pose a significant stress on your already depleted immune system. However once strong antibodies are established (usually after 3 or 4 months from the primary infection) it would be safe to conceive and the glandular fever should not have any negative impact on your fertility. I would in the interim recommend that you assess your immune status and do a full blood count and also have a pelvic ultrasound done to ensure that there are no remaining products of conception i.e. bit and pieces of placental tissue left in your womb or the chances of a molar pregnancy.
