There are many drugs, that fall under the category of antibiotics. Some of them are safe during the pregnancy, while others are not. Your gynaecologist knows about the same. You are not supposed to take drugs of your own during pregnancy. Antibiotics are the class of drugs that must be prescribed to you by your doctor. You are requested to tell your doctor that you are pregnant, specially in the early months of pregnancy. Next time you go to the doctor, mention the same again. Do not presume that she or he knows the fact.
The general rule should be: take medication only on the advice of a practitioner who knows you are pregnant, and only when it is absolutely necessary.
