TTC and on antibiotics

Good Day Doc

I am trying to conceive but got tonsilitis last week and have been treated with antibiotics. I am using amoxicilien, 5 day course and should be finished tomorrow. I am just concerned that there might be birth deffects should I concieve or have conceived during this time. I am terribly worried.

Thank you

It is highly unlikely, as amoxycillin is safe in pregnancy. If you are pregnant, a detailed ultrasound should be done at 16 weeks to exclude birth defects.
