Recent Study Shows Link Between Two Types of Antibiotic and Birth Defects


For many women, having children is the most important thing they will ever do. We are programmed genetically to reproduce in order to allow our species to survive. We are animals, and like many animals, we protect our young. This need to protect our children is also why it is scary that two common antibiotics have recently been linked to causing birth defects.

A recent study showed that two common antibiotics may cause birth defects. The two drugs in the study were nitrofurantoins (sold under the brand names Macrobid and Furadantin) and sulfa drugs (sold under the names Bactrim and Thiosulfil Forte). However, this was only the first study to show these results and further testing will be needed in order to confirm any real findings.

This does not mean that ALL antibiotics will cause birth defects. The only thing these findings mean is that you have to talk with your doctor about taking certain medications. You need to understand what some of these different medicines do. You must weigh the potential risks of the drug against the benefits. Take some time to really find out all the courses of action.
