We already know that there are certain medications to avoid whilst you are pregnant, however, the safety of medication when trying to conceive is less apparent.
It’s always a good idea to consult with your doctor before trying for a baby to optimise your health before pregnancy. There are some medications that may affect your chances of falling pregnant. If you are unsure of whether any medication (including prescription or over-the-counter medication, supplements or herbal remedies) you take can affect your fertility, it is important to discuss this with your GP so that they may review your medication regimen. Don’t stop taking a medication before speaking to your doctor first, it may be that the benefits of taking your medication outweigh any potential fertility concerns.
