Not really wanting to even deal with this right now, but I know I can’t put off doing what I can to physically heal for very long.<br><br>
I gave birth on Sunday to my beautiful, sleeping baby (at 17 weeks) and during the process ended up having a lot of antibiotics.<br><br><br>
Amoxicillin and uuuuh, something else I can't recall through IV, and now I am on 7 days of flagyl. The IV antibiotics were to prevent infection for a heart murmur I have, and the flagyl is to prevent uterine infection from BV I had.<br><br>
I am already doubling up on probiotics, and I was taking them regularly before this as well. I have no side effects thus far.<br><br>
What else can I do, maybe not right now, but in the near future to clean my body out from all of this?

oh my gosh, that trauma is still VERY new. I have no advice for you because I"m still learning too but I'm so sorry to hear about the trauma of the birth. I"m sure he is absolutely gorgeous. Here's hoping you heal both physically and mentally from that experience. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

hi there, I'm so sorry for your loss and it's wonderful that you got to spend some time with your son. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>
I had abx with the births of both of my kids (c/s) and mainly really good probiotics help, also eating whole foods and watching out for a sugar craving, which can mean a yeast imbalance. If you're not having any symptoms, I'd just keep on doing what you're doing for right now and get checked out later if you do.

What probiotics are you using? I would 3x/day. If you have any digestive symptoms consider digestive enzymes with and between meals. <a href="http://www.enzymestuff.com" target="_blank">www.enzymestuff.com</a><br><br>
I would do several courses of Gy-Na-Tren suppositories as well and would be something I'd do periodically for a very long time and certainly if any gyn symptoms show up.<br><a href="http://www.natren.com/gy-na-tren.asp" target="_blank">http://www.natren.com/gy-na-tren.asp</a><br><br>
BV has been shown in studies to be a major factor in premature birth.

eat yogurt / acidophilus and make sure you're getting enough Omega-3's in your diet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
congrats!
