No problem

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
There is nothing to worry you can very well try for a baby as albendazole is safe to take.
Delay in periods once in a while doesn't make any difference.
Take care

But I heard that once we take albendazole there should be a gap of 1 month to conceive a baby and how far it's true ?


Can I continue on taking omega 3 fish oil tabs 360 mg during pregnancy too ? Right now am having two gel capsules per day FYI

Brief Answer:
No problem

Detailed Answer:
Yes dear you can continue the capsules.
Albendazole is safe and is commonly given before and after pregnancy.
At times it delays conception but not a evidence based fact (just an observation)
so it is advised to try after that month of albendazole intake so that patients are not disheartened on failure to conceive in that cycle
