It really depends on the antibiotic and the class drug it is. Drugs are rated different classes based on their risk to a pregnancy. For example, Amoxicillin is considered a class B drug. Class B drugs are considered relatively safe. Tetracycline on the other hand is considered a Class D drug, meaning there is sufficient data to determine the drug is harmful during pregnancy.

For more information on drug classes, you can start at the related link. To find out what class of drug your antibiotic is, go to any drug database and look up the drug information. It should list the pregnancy category in the information.

I would discuss the use of Alesse and the antibiotics with your doctor or midwife if you are pregnant.
