    Default Can antibiotics effect my supply?

    just curious- at my six week check up my dr has prescribed some antibiotics for me as my csection scar was looking a bit red and sore. He ha previously prescibed something for me for thrush and he knows i am bfeeding and he looked long and hard to find an appropriate tablet i could take for that (took ages and is bloody expensive) but for my antibiotics he just gave me normal ones- is that right??? Are they ok to take???

    thanks for any replies!

    SB, they won't affect your supply, but you might want to consider a probiotic for yourself while taking them. Also keep an eye out for the signs of thrush, which is much more likely when taking ABs.

    Hope your scar is better soon.
