Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Once your period becomes regular your Doctor will ask you to stop the medicine and then try for pregnancy. You cannot get ovulation when you are taking this drug. If you plan for pregnancy you need to consult with your Doctor and get appropriate changes done as necessary.
