Subject: Planning pregnancy - malaria
Posted by: Musti
My wife and I visited India recently and had to take medication to prevent malaria. We are now back and ready to plan our family but people have warned us that there is a waiting period after you have taken malaria medication. How long should we wait and what are the dangers if she does fall pregnant soon after.
