NO medication is safe before, during and after pregnancy. Including immunizations. I will never get another flu shot and if I have a daughter, she will not be getting that gardasil and absolutely no chicken pox vaccine. We are setting up our kids to have immune systems that fail. My generation turned out fine without all that crap.
