If you are planning to become pregnant in the near future, and are in a clinical trial, you should inform your physician and the research coordinator. You should not become pregnant while participating in a clinical trial of medications, since it is potentially unknown any effects of the new drug or dose on the fetus. Should you become pregnant while in a clinical trial, it is important to immediately notify your clinical trials physician and your regular physicians, and seek attention from a high risk obstetrician.
