MACROBID & TTC????!!!!!

Please tell me if you're familiar with this....I take Macrobid after intercourse to prevent urinary tract infections. If I don't take it after EVERY time, I usually end up getting a bladder infection. I am going to being trying to conceive, and I am gynocologist said that it's okay to stay on the macrobid, however I left a message with my urologist to get a second opinion, and he said that I should stop taking it. IT'S A CATCH 22!!! I can't have sex without my macrobid, and I can't get pregnant without sex!! Has anyone had this experience?? Please help!!!!

I'm not sure about conceiving on macrobid, but I'd think it's okay. I'm 20 weeks pregnant and my doctor just prescribed it for a bladder infection. So if it's alright during pregnancy I'd think it would be alright for conception also. Sorry I don't have any facts. Good luck! <IMG SRC="">

Re: MACROBID & TTC????!!!!!

Call the pharmacist and ask what the pregnancy drug classification of macrobid is. If it is a "A or B" then go with your OB/GYN. If it is a "C or D" You could also ask what the half life of the medication is. You would probably still be okay to take it during the time you're trying to concieve - during ovulation. Then you could avoid intercourse until you either started you're period or you get a positive test.

You could also try to look up this medication on the internet and get that information too.
