Hello ma'am and welcome.

Many individuals have consumed medications that can potentially harm the fetus without knowing they were pregnant and have gone on to deliver a healthy child. But ofcourse, the risk of possible hinderance to the growth and development of the fetus does exist.

I would recommend a home pregnancy test to be conducted on the second day of a missed period or 2 weeks after the suspected date of conception using an early morning urine sample. If at all pregnancy is confirmed, please meet your doctor for further, more elaborate discussion.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
