Thanks for consulting ATD.
Cephalexin is an antibiotic that belongs to the class I Cephalosporins. It should be used with caution and as per the recommended dosage. In pregnancy, it is a category B drug and should be used only under medical supervision. It is not advisable to consume 2 tabs or as you wish. Please consult your Gynaecologist if you have any discomfort rather treating on your own.
Have a nice day.
