Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your worries. If you suspect to be pregnant, I advise not to use this product until you get sure you are not pregnant.

Although this product contains the extract of many herbs, it also contains vitamins and minerals in higher dose than usual ones. If you are pregnant, these high doses can interfere with fetus development.

Wait until you repeat the test and then, you can start taking it!
