Infectious Disease in Pregnancy

Most common maternal infections like UTIs, skin and respiratory tract infections are usually not serious problems during pregnancy, although some genital infections like bacterial vaginosis and genital herpes affect labor or choice of delivery method. Thus, the main issue is usually use and safety of antimicrobial drugs. Give antibacterials to pregnant patients only when there is strong evidence of a bacterial infection and only if benefits of treatment outweigh risk, which varies by trimester.
