Taking Levosiz M for urticaria. Possibility of getting pregnant by continuing drug?

Hi Dr.
I have been taking Levosiz M 10 mg for the past 3 years due to having chronic urticaria. Wanted to know what are the possibilities of me getting pregnant if I continue with this drug? Can I continue to take this drug after I am pregnant? Or do I have to stop having this drug if I wish to get pregnant.
Please suggest.
