welcome to healthcaremagic
your doctor by this time must have checked you and your partner .husband's semen analysis is important .
the medicine prescribed to be taken as advice and to be under doctoe's treatment and follopw advice
It is safe to take the medicine and there will be no side effect on the baby even if you conceive. You must consult your doctor whether to continue or stop it once you conceive. Some doctors would want to stop it. Some would continue it for few months and then stop. And some would want to continue it throughout the pregnancy.
Wish you good health.
