took trimethroprim 200 mg/2 daily for 3 days a week later i lost the baby and was told its possibly linked
There is no way to know for certain. Women lose babies after using nothing at all. Trimethoprim does interfere with folic acid metabolism so Trimethoprim should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. UTI also poses risk to the fetus and mother especially if it escalates into a kidney infection or sepsis. Did the Dr who prescribed the antibiotic know you were pregnant when he prescribed it?
