    Good evening, as much as possible one is advised not to use drugs without a doctors prescription during pregnancy and especially in the first trimester. Artesunate has been shown to be safe in pregnancy but I still believe you should see a doctor to appropriately assess you and then prescribe if necessary. Take care.
