Customer Question

Aug. 16th i was perscribed diclofenac/misoprostal (200 mg of misoprostal). I have taken about 4 or 5 of the pills since august 16th and i think my last one was on the 20th. I just found out I am pregnant. Is my baby going to have birth defects? what are the chances of that happening? The doctor who perscribed it to me said nothing about the fact that this could cause serious issues in pregnancy.
