Yes: However, if you and your partner are being treated at the same time - wait to try for a baby for at least a month after she has completed her treatment.

Here is the issue-: both you & your partner (or family) should be treated. A woman should wait at least one month after finishing treatment with Albendazole before becoming pregnant.
