just found out I'm pregnant and I took 2 pills of Bactrim for UTI. Should I worry?
So I was prescribed to Bactrim for a UTI on 1/7/13. I was prescribed to 800/160; 2 pills a day for 3 days, a total of 6 pills, but I Only took 2. This was about a week after the baby was conceived. I just found out yesterday that I am pregnant. I told the nurse that I could be pregnant; she took a test and it came negative and the doctor prescribed me to Bactrim anyway. i took one day's worth but stopped after reading the back of the prescription bottle and switched to amoxicillin. I read about Bactrim and read that it is a Class C drug and could be harmful to the baby during the first and third trimester. Has anybody taken Bactrim during their first trimester. It said that it could give cause Folic Acid deficiency and thus cause neural defects. I know I only took two pills but I am a very paranoid person. Thanks for any response;)
