Antibiotics after ERPC

Had ERPC yesterday. No antibiotics offered. Should I go to gp to request some, or does it really not matter? Thanks in advance.

I was given them "as a precaution". Ask if you're worried

I was given them as a precaution too. I would definitely ask as they seem to be quite important.

Just phoned the hospital. They say they don't offer them at all! Gp closed today. Will after hour surgery offer them do you think?

I don't know really. You could ring them to ask I guess, I've never used an after hours surgery so not sure what they do. Infections after an ERPC can be quite serious which is why I was told that they (normally) give them to you as routine.

I was offered them either, and did end up with an infection!! I thought I had a water infection though... Had a course of strong antibiotics followed by a lovely dose of thrush Hmm.

Do you think you have an infection diamond??

Was in pain yesterday, so was prescribed codeine. Dizzy, faint and nauseous today: dr paid home visit, he said I had a raised temp too, so probably had developed an infection, so he prescribed two antibiotics. Now my worry is that I've had the same two antibiotics earlier this month- when infection set in in the early stages of miscarriage. But the doc seems to think the same antibiotics taken again after a weeks break in between are ok?! So, as I have no knowledge in the matter, I have preceded to take them in the hope that he is correct! FX that he is. This is dragging out a bit now. Feel very run down too.
