Antibiotics - Labour

Can anti biotics affect labour in any way?

And can they actually delay labour?

I'm overdue with no signs at all despite sweeps, accurate dates, loads of walking ball bouncing etc etc & dreaded induction is booked.

It just occurred to me that I've been talking erythromycin (4 x 250mg daily) for a rash.

Any thoughts? Thanks

Highly unlikely; otherwise they would be prescribed for threatened pre-term labour.

Best of luck - I had two inductions which were just fine. I loved not having a panicked drive to the hospital in the middle of the night or some other random time.
