Is it safe to have medications for high BP and migraine during pregnancy?
20 days back i went to doctor for preconception councelling.... but i was diagnosed with the hypertention due to migrain.... as per now doctor prescriped me medicine for hypertention and migrain for almost one month, he told me that he ll gradually decrease the medication and will stop finally.
the prescriped medications are safe for pregnancy...
it has been 20 days m taking those medicines and my hypertension and migrain are absolutely ok since his prescription.
so my que. is can i now plan the baby.... though my medications are still continue and my ovulation timing is about to be there in few days. ?
You can plan the baby.
Thank you for posting your query.
I have noted your medical details.
It is good to note that your hypertension and migraine are both under good control. Your doctor would be able to take off the medications soon.In any case, these are safe medicines; so, you should be able to plan the baby without any risk.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

No need to wait.
Thank you for getting back.
There is no need to wait until he stops the medications. You can plan the baby prior to that too.
