Hi there...don't be alarmed. Itraconazole belongs to pregnancy category C drug. It means it can affect the foetus if taken during pregnancy. However it doesn't necessarily mean it has to affect it. Also taking any drug, especially during the first trimester of pregnancy is not advisable. From the timeline you are mentioning, you might not have been pregnant when you took the tablets. Kindly consult a obstetrician and explain to them about the tablets you have taken. They will be able to evaluate you further
