Feedback:
Most cytotoxic antineoplastic drugs are potentially teratogenic, and pregnancy should be avoided during and for several months after drug therapy is stopped. The medication is not completely eliminated in 24 hours. The patient should be protected from infection, but this characteristic is not related to pregnancy. The patient can get pregnant after the medication is administered.
