Keflex

A - May 1

I am 19 weeks pregnant, and I went to the ER yesterday because I thought I had a spider bite on my va___al area...The doc said it was an ingrown hair that became absessed and he had to numb it and drain it...OUCH! I cried...lol but anyways, he prescribed Keflex to me, and I asked if if was safe for the baby, and he said it shouldnt affect it. but I haven't taken in the prescription yet, I just dont think I trust this ER doctor....I'm suppose to call my OBGYN Monday for a check-up on the absess, but I was wondering if any of you know if Keflex is safe to take...I am not taking it if it has any affect on this baby...if anyone has any info, please let me know. Thanks

I'm not really sure... I'm allergic to Keflex (I can't breathe when I take it) so I wouldn't be taking it either way, haha... but what you could do... is call your doctor's office and just ask to speak with your OBGYN real quick, say you've got a quick important question, and then ask him/her over the phone. That would be your best bet.

I checked my book from sick kids hospital in toronto and it says keflex falls under something called Cephalexin and its common use: antiobiotic and its fetal safety: safe. page 82 of the "Complete Guide to Risks in Pregnancy and b___stfeeding".

Why be treated by someone whose opinion you don't trust?

I read in "1000 Questions About Your Pregnancy" that Keflex is safe. It would be much more dangerous for you to have an infection (and possible high fever) than it would to take the meds. Keflex tastes bad, I had to put the pills in a little margarine to swallow them, and then I kept burping them. (And that was when I wasn't pregnant!) Good luck taking yours....
