Hi all I'm 29 weeks pregnant and treated my family for threadworms, including myself, without even thinking, it's only after I read the Ovex packet that it says don't take if pregnant or breastfeeding, should I be concerned? I feel fine and baby is moving but could it affect my baby in anyway? I'm really panicking for some reason!

It should be fine:

The link talks about mebendazole (Ovex), as well as piperazine.
