Q: Is it safe to have intercourse while taking ciprofloxacin and flagyl

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

It is proven that ciprofloxacin can cause abnormalities in fetus when taken in early conception in studies done in animals. Hence it is not advisable to have unprotected intercourse when you are on these antibiotics.

Hope this helped.
