Hello dr.David. I would like to ask You. I have the caliform bacteria in urine and as I told before in our chat that I'm 14 weeks of pregnancy.

Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.

Dr. Owen :

hello

Dr. Owen :

Dr David is not an ob/gyn- so you have been referred to me, and I am an obstetrician

Dr. Owen :

And, I would suggest testing for this in the vagina again - and as you might not have this - and if you do - then I would just suggest getting treated with Flagyl and you should be fine

Customer: It is in the urine....and I'm sorry that I repeit it again but I'm wondering could I take nothing as I don't have any simptomps
Customer: Tnk You
Customer: I wouldn't take drogs as its still early pregnancy
Dr. Owen :

okay - then if in the Urine you want to treat it - because this is an Urinary tract infectoin

Dr. Owen :

and hence you want to treat an infection because urinary tract infections can cause a miscarriage possibly - so treat this with an antibiotic

because an infection needs to be treated.

Kanefron is not adequate for this

You should use Macrobid - which is available in Nigeria

and you should NOT have any problems with this antibiotic
