Is it safe to use medicine while I am trying to become pregnant?


If you are pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant….

  • Do not stop any prescribed medicines without first talking to your doctor.
  • Talk to your doctor before using any over-the-counter medicine.

It is hard to know exactly when you will get pregnant. Once you do get pregnant, you may not know you are pregnant for 10 to 14 days or longer. Before you start trying to get pregnant, it is wise to schedule a meeting with your doctor to discuss medicines that you use daily or every now and then. Sometimes, medicines should be changed, and sometimes they can be stopped before a woman gets pregnant. Each woman is different. So you should discuss your medicines with your doctor rather than making medicine changes on your own.
