Hi Sonu, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Kindly do not worry, Either studies in animals have revealed adverse effects on the fetus but there are no controlled studies in humans that would reveal that Zanocin causes adverse effects on fetus.It can be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. If your Periods are regular have unprotected sex every alternate day starting from the 10th to 20th day of your cycle, because this is the fertile period and miscarriages don't guarantee infertility and you will be able to conceive. Once you miss your expected periods, test for UPT using a Early morning urine sample after a week of missing your Periods. Once you conceive, you will be given Hormonal drugs (Progesterone) to maintain your Pregnancy.

All the Very Best, Wish you Good Health, Take Care.
