Yes: It is fine to continue many medications during pregnancy but there are always exceptions. Sometimes doses need to be adjusted during a pregnancy, or alternative medications found. Please talk to your doctor about your medications---preferably before you even get pregnant so you know which ones are safe.
Dr. Michael Engel

It depends on....: The medication. Some medications are safe in pregnancy, some are absolutely contraindicated and some we simply don't know one way or the other. You need to discuss this issue with you obstetrician and be absolutely certain about any medication, over the counter agent, dietary supplement, etc. Before you take it. The stakes are just too high.

A 48-year-old member asked:

Has anybody ever used spermicides before and gotten preggers?

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes, very often: Spermicidal foams, gels, and films when used alone without a condom have a significantly high pregnancy rate. In other words, if 100 women were using a spermicide alone as their only means of contraception, approximately 20 would be pregnant in one year.

In time: Your body has to clear the drug before your regular periods resume. Once this happens, you should be able to get pregnant unless there are some other issues preventing this from happening. So please see your gynecologist if you have been trying for a while without success.

Plus, if you have been trying to get pregnant for a year or more, your partner should be tested first if he has not fathered a child yet.
