Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question. Congrats on the pregnancy! Levofloxacin and ketoconazole both have potential to affect the fetus, although nothing is certain at this point. It depends on many factors such as how long you used the medications for, how your body metabolizes them, etc. You should talk to your doctor to get a full list of potential harms (and to find safer ways to treat recurring yeast infections during pregnancy). Good luck!
