Can I try to get pregnant after taking cold medicine?

My husband and I are trying to conceive our 2nd baby. I got a cold a week ago and took some cold medicine, the last time of which was 2 days before. Today i feel i might be ovulating. Can we still try to conceive? Will the medicine do any harm on the baby if we make it? Or how long should we wait? Thanks!

Thanks for query,
Medicines taken for some time and before ovulation has not effect on pregnancy.
Any medicines will be absorbed and threw out from the body within 24 hours.
So nothing to worry and try for conception.
ok and bye.
