Malerone and pregnancy?

Dear doc,

I went to Zambia for a couple of days and just finished my anti-malaria tablets (12 tablets of Malerone). As of when will it be safe to fall pregnant? I don't want to wait much longer as I'm already 34...

How harmfull would it be if I would be pregnant already (it's too early to do a test)?

While it is not ideal to take malaria tablets in pregnancy, it probably would not cause much harm if you have done so now. Wait a month before trying to fall pregnant.

Best wishes
