Welcome to ehealthforum,
You can continue your pregnancy plans after you finish with the antibiotic course. Get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection. Vaginal infections can easily infect the urinary tract (as female urethra is close to the vaginal opening). Drink plenty of water. Avoid tight fitting clothes.
Take care.
