Thank you for your question.
In pregnancy metronidazole may be prescribed when indicated, as metronidazole has not been definitively shown to be harmful during pregnancy. Failure to treat some bacterial infections during pregnancy may result in preterm birth, low birth weight, and other adverse fetal outcomes. Therefore you need to take the medication as adviced by your doctor.
