Ok so when I first went to cooper, Dr check did some culture rest and it happened that I had ureaplasma, he put both me and DH on 2 weeks of doxicycline (spelling!!) Then I tested again and was all clean. No more ureaoplasma. Thank g-d.this was 3 month ago.

So now I did an IVF with him and got my bfp 5 days ago. he now wants me to take zithromax(anti biotic) one per day for the whole first trimester. I take it every other other week. Meaning take 7 days stop 7 days and so on....

He said even the culture showed neg I may still have some bacteria in the inner layers. I do trust Dr check 150% but I am scared to take so much med during prg and I am scared not to take it. Any one ever had the same or possible similar experience.

Ps, this was my 4 th IVF but first transfer, I never have made it to transfer before. Never had a chemical or miscarriage. I have endo stage 4. And I think his purpose is to prevent miscarriage.

he just gave me Doxy for an iui because I always get sick when anything goes into my body.

He is usually right. I believe that if everything checks out, he may have you stop. I would maybe start the medication and retest in a month or so. hope all is going well.

I was on antibiotics several times late in my pregnancy...every time I went to the hospital for preterm labor they treated me like I was going to deliver that day so they put me on antibiotics in case of group b strep. It's worse for an infection to spread which could actually harm or even kill your baby. Your immune system is weaker right now b/c you are pg, so that's why he is being really careful. Your body can't take care of small amounts like it could if you were not pg.

If he says you should take it then I would take it. You don't want an infection.
