Could it be?

Hi Doc

My husband and I had unprotected sex last night. I am 35 and we dont have children. Now while I am excited about the prospect of falling pregnant, the problem is I am on medication at the moment and wanted to ask you if you thought the medication would cause harm to the fetus (if in fact I did conceive last night!).

I have just finished a course of Amoxocillin for a bad sinus infection, that did not clear it up so I am currently taking a course of Keflor antibiotics, stemitil for dizziness and panado (off and on Myprodol when I need it). With this current sinus infection I dont know where I found the energy last night! :)

YOur opinion is appreciated, thanks!

Dear Neurotic
Although one would preferably avoid Myprodol if possible, and usually won't use Kefalosporin antibiotics in pregnancy, none of these are known to cause fetal abnormalities. Safety in pregnancy is not yet established for Stemetil or Keflor.
