Diabetologist Dr. Amit Rajput's  Response
Hello Rafia,

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.
