Hi - calling any health professionals out there, really appreciate your advice! Went to Africa back in March and therefore had live yellow fever vac (end of Feb) and took malarone malaria tabs until mid-March. When cd we start trying to conceive? I've heard anywhere between 3-5 months after but want to be doubly sure it's okay.

Hi - I was in East Africa last year for my honeymoon and conceived on my wedding day. Was taking Malarone and had had the YF jab. Didn't know I was preggers on holiday but when I came back found out. Was worried sick about the Malarone but consultant at Tropical Diseases hosp in ldn and local Dr said there was no risk to foetus. Anyway all turned out hunky dory and have 18 mth ds now!
