Hello, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Well, it is best not to take any medications during pregnancy. It all depends on what medications you are taking. Since you have been taking them for so long, are they anti-tubercular drugs or anti-fungal medications? Some drugs for tuberculosis are safe in pregnancy and some are not. If they are antibiotics then you need to find out whether they are safe in pregnancy or not. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your gynecologist regarding this. If the medications you are taking are not safe for the baby, you must get an ultrasound to see the baby. Hope this helps. Take care!
