Thanks for the query.
It is indeed true that the medications can affect the baby growth and organogenesis. Since it has been taken at very early stages, say at embryo formation level, we may have an option of continuing the pregnancy. It depends on what specific medicines she has taken. Discuss regarding the same with a gynecologist. You may wish to continue the pregnancy and follow it up with serial scan, including early anomaly scan. In the case of any organogenesis, you may wish to have a termination. Furnish all the drug names to the doctor including the dosage taken.
Hope this helped.
