  • I wouldn't worry too much if you've stopped taking it, but it's considered toxic for a fetus.  It affects their bones.  How long a cycle were you on?  How far along were you when you took it?  You can't do anything about it at this point, other than not take it again while you're pregnant.  Good luck!!
