Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.
It is always better to see a Gynecologist for an examination and then take the required medicine during pregnancy. Though azithromycin is not harmful at your period of gestation, it is better to consult the Doctor once for specific requirements. Meanwhile, warm saline gargles three to four times a day, rest to your voice and drink plenty of water daily. If you have no other choice, then can take azithromycin.
Hope this helped.
Regards
