I am fairly certain I have strep throat based on how I feel, and the white patches in my throat:( Going to a take care clinic tomorrow, b/c my dr's office is not open on Saturday, for a test...I am TERRIFIED to take any medication, as I am only 9 weeks pregnant. Can anyone let me know experiences with this, or any home remedies for strep?!?

you can take antibiotics while pregnant just tell them and they will prescribe something. Keflex is safe

They'll probably just give you amoxicillin, which is safe to take while pregnant. Just let them know you're pregnant. I've taken the Z Pack and Amoxicillin while pregnant... this pregnancy actually... and that was at the beginning, around 9-12 weeks...

I had a very bad infected tooth. They pumped me with antibiotics

I was on Z pak during my first pregnancy for strep throat and it was completely fine.
