Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
In early pregnancy all medications except folvite should be avoided.
But as your wife was already taking these medications, so it is better to continue pregnancy & get ultrasound scan in early pregnancy,nucal translucency scan & triple test on time & as guide by your gynaecologist.
All the best.

Hello,
Mensil is used as a birth control pill. It should not be used during pregnancy. It has been reported to produce birth defects. It is possible that your wife may have conceived before she contracted the urinary infection. The earliest tests to detect birth defects can be done at 10-12 weeks after last menstrual period. So, if you wish to continue the pregnancy, you have to be cautious about anomalies that may need an abortion at a later date. Even the diagnostic tests have the risk of causing abortion. So, I advice you to discuss thoroughly with your wife's doctor and take a decision. Good luck.
