hi, I had throat swab results back today from Thursday. it shows I have strep a infection - white spots on tonsils, I don't have a fever and feel better and throat looking bit better. the nurse practioner offered penicillin, but agreed to see how the next two days go as I'm feeling better. I'd rather not take antibiotics as I'm starting to feel better, any advice, now worrying that I should just in case. 2 weeks ago I was off work with a viral infection, was faint and fell in the process, I had a week off then, I've worked all weekend this time. I had a good start to pregnancy, but now keep getting ill.
