A new study shows certain types of antibiotics used in early pregnancy could increase your risk of miscarriage. Researchers say you should avoid these types of medications, especially during pregnancy:

  • Macrolides
  • Quinolones
  • Tetracyclines
  • Sulfonamides
  • Metronidazole

Talk to your doctor about anything you may be prescribed. The most common antibiotics -- penicillin and erythromycin -- are fine to use, according to the study.
