I am using 0.1% betamethasone for 4 months, i just know that I am pregnant in the first month, does the drug have any adverse effect on the fetus?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Probably OK

It's hard to prove any medicine is 100% safe in pregnancy.
If it's not essential you could stop it for 1st trimester. However, little of the topical steroid will reach the fetus and many women have used it, not realizing they were pregnant. There does not seem to be any pattern of adverse effects on the fetus.
