So I just found out that I have an ear infection. I kind of figured cuz it freaking hurts!! Anyways I went to my pcp and she prescribed me amoxicillan. I called my ob and they agreed with taking this prescription. I'm still really wary about it though I've been really careful to not take any drugs this pregnancy and I'm a little scared but don't know what else to do.

Ear infections can cause serious damage relating in blown eardrums or deafness. I'd take the meds. Also an infection that close to your face and brain can spread and get worse.

Yeah usually they say to take stuff if the "benefits outweigh the risks". An ear infection left untreated could get really bad. You won't be taking it forever and you'll be less miserable and stressed when you're feeling better which is MUCH better for you and the baby.

I hope you feel better soon. Being sick stinks.

Take the meds. Last pregnancy I ended up in the ER with bronchitis (I have severe asthma). I was put on antibiotics and steroids.

Thank you for my beautiful siggy, *Kiliki*!Visit My Blog

Definitely take them. If your that concerned about it ask if they can give you an antibiotic ear drop instead.
