Antibiotics during TWW

Anyone been on antibiotics during the TWW and still had success?

Hospital have given me some today as I've been suffering with stomach cramps since EC and ET I did check with the consultant they were safe to take and he said he's prescribed me some that are safe to take during pregnancy.

Feeling like because I've got this issue my chances are falling - lots of positivity needed!

I was on anti biotics during ET and the beginning of the tww, like you they were prescribed as safe during pregnancy and I checked with the embryologist. I got my BFP so don't lose hope x

Ah I'm sorry to hear that, I had complications after EC and ended up in hospital for 3 days before ET it definitely adds pressure to an already stressful time. Hopefully your feeling better soon, keeping everything crossed for positive news on your OTD x

I started with really bad stomach cramps on Sunday, had ET on Monday and cramps still happening, thought they had fine yesterday but then they appeared again this morning just glad I rang the clinic now and they've given me something x

That's not good, glad you called your clinic I think it's always best to check with them. Hopefully once the antibiotics kick in you'll be feeling a lot better, try and rest as much as you can x

It would be worse if you didn't take them. I personally don't think it would affect your chances.

Once upon a time they used to prescribe antibiotics for ivf rounds as standard (in the days before there was such a concern about antibiotic resistance) so I'm certain they won't affect your chances. Xx
