Thank you for your query.
Any medication should be taken with caution during the first 3 months of pregnancy, as there is a chance of the medication causing problems with the developement of the baby's organ systems.
My advice to you would be to complete your course of treatment, before embarking on a pregnancy. This is the safest approach.
Best wishes
