Second trimester is the safest time if surgery has to be done; otherwise, it should be postponed until the pregnancy is over.

If you are already pregnant and need your gallbladder out, best to wait until after you deliver. If you cannot wait due to pain, vomiting etc. best to do surgery n the second trimester. If you were not pregnant yet and scheduled for surgery you could use protection to prevent pregnancy until after your surgery
