Truvada is classified by the FDA as a pregnancy category B drug which means it is safe during pregnancy. During my pregnancy I used Tenofovir which is also cat B and my baby is healthy thanks god. I never stopped taking it. I don't know much about Truvada but as long as it is category B, I believe it is fine. Confirm with your dr. Goood luck.
