Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

I hope you took the medication under medical guidance. Each patient behaves differently with these medications and it is best to avoid self-administration.

Since the medication did not take its effect and the pregnancy is continuing, it is very important to go for an ultrasound to see the condition of the baby. While ther may have been no lasting side effects and the baby may be fine, it is important to confirm this through ultrasound. Please consult your gynecologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
