Dear Confused
Honestly - I would suggest you cancel your vacation - no malaria medication is considered totally safe in the first 3 months of pregnancy except Proguanil and choloquine combination, which is not regarded as 100% effective these days. Talk to a travel clinic near you - they will know what is effective for the area you plan to visit, or postpone your IVF with 3 months
