Hello,

Ciprofloxacin: Pregnancy Category C.-

Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks.

Cipro reduces the effectivness of birth control pills. You need to use a back up method while you are taking the antibiotic and for seven days after you finish the antibiotic or you could become pregnant!
