I took the medicines

and may have conceived just a week after finishing the prescribed medication (2 week duration), should i be concerned? what could happen to my baby ? and is there anything i can do to help now ?


At that early stage, if subjected to any type of stress the embryo just aborts and the effects aren't teratogenic as no organogenesis is occuring. If it survived this period, then most likely and hopefully the baby will be fine. The most dangerous period as regards teratogenic effects due to medication is week 4-8, it can happen later too but is most harmful during this period.


All or nothing in the first two weeks after conception. No worry with those drugs before conception


well im 3 months now, and everything seems to be fine
