Our expert says:
No, it is not true that antibiotics cause miscarriage. Some antibiotics can cause fetal abnormalities. There are so many antibiotics that it would be difficult to list them all. Rather tell me what antibiotics you have taken or are thinking of taking and I will tell you if they are safe or not. Urinary infections can start contractions and can therefore cause preterm labour. It is therefore important to treat them. The Penicillin group of antibiotics are safe in pregnancy.
