Default Augmentin

Hi everybody,

Due to a lump in my right breast, my doc asked me to take Augmentin. After taking one pill, I found out that I was already 6 weeks pregnant.
My doc said that I should stop taking Augmentin though it is perfectly safe for pregnant woman.

I am VERY worry about my baby. Can anybody help?
Is Augmentin really safe? Will that pill cause my baby any birth defect?
This is my second baby. Help!

Relax. Augmentin is just amoxycillin plus clavulanate
potassium. It's pregnancy category C, meaning that studies
in animals haven't revealed any problems, but there just
haven't been any well-controlled studies in humans. The
odds that this will cause any sort of problem are incredibly
small.

Best wishes,
Ericka
