  • I am currently pregnant and have a UTI and they tried to prescribe me Bactrum (anti biotic) and I looked it up and it is known for causing birth defects... so I did some research and found out that Amoxicillin will get rid of it just the same but does not cause birth defects but another thing there are different things you can take in every stage of pregnancy I am in my second trimester so I could take that but if you are in your first or third you can only take certain things!! I just googled your anti biotic and it is a form of bactrum I think and it does cause birth defects go with Amoxicillin and be safe!!! because not study is found it causes anything wrong but bactrum and others there are I would be safe then sorry hope this helps sweetie I am like you i freak out over these things lol
