Trying to conceive, light periods. Taken zentel medication. Effects of zentel during pregnancy?

Hi. My husband and I are trying to conceive. I took 2 Zentel tablets on the first day of my periods. But my periods was unusually light and lasted for only 3 days and this has never happened before. I am afraid that I might be pregnant and I know that it is advised not to take during pregnancy. What are the effects of Zentel when taken during early pregnancy ?

Thanks for query,
Light & short period doesn't indicate pregnancy.You should confirm your pregnancy by taking home pregnancy test first.
if you have taken zentel on first day of your period started then you have taken it before your ovulation taken place means you are not that time.
If during that particular cycle your ovulation taken place 14 days before your next period the effect of zentel not remains in your body.
ZENTEL has been shown to be teratogenic and embryotoxic in rats and rabbits so contraindicated during pregnancy.
So nothing to worry.

ZENTEL has been shown to be teratogenic and embryotoxic in rats and rabbits.
