Over 80 percent of women report taking medications during their pregnancy. During the preimplantation stage, in very early pregnancy, exposure to a drug is unlikely to produce a teratogenic effect due to an inbuilt 'recovery process’ in the concepts.

If a teratogenic insult occurs and there is damage to only a small number of cells then ‘compensation’ occurs whereby the remaining viable cells continue to divide to replace any that were damaged. However, if a large number of cells are damaged then implantation will not occur and the pregnancy will be lost. This is known as the ‘all or nothing’ or the totipotent period. The 10 weeks following implantation are the most sensitive as this is the time during which major structural changes and organogenesis are taking place.
