About 2 weeks ago, I came down with a bad cold. I've been fighting it off, trying not to take anything (I took Tylenol cold once when I had to give a reading at a wedding and didn't want to be a sniffly, sneezing mess). Last night, one side of my throat began to hurt and the lymph nodes on that side swelled up.
Luckily, I had an on gyn appointment today (just moved to a new city, don't have a PCP yet) and she prescribed me a z pack, even though she couldn't test for strep in her office. My best friend, who is also a women's health NP, wants me to go to an Urgent Care for a strep test before I start taking the antibiotics.
Anyone here have have any experience with taking antibiotics or potentially having strep during pregnancy?
