Hi Jane, i dont have the answer to your question but id say your best bet would be to ask your pharmacist. if they dont know off hand they would have the means to find out for you. HTH. best of luck with the run up to the wedding.

I took Tetralysal until the end of December and got pregnant 2 weeks after stopping it, it never occurred to me it could stay in my system for more than a few days. Best ask your GP for peace of mind.
