Is it safe to have botox before conceiving?

I regularly have Botox injections in every 6 months. My last injection was in last May. Now is the time. But also at the same time we try to conceive a baby. I want to learn if it is safe or not? If I learn that I am pregnant just after my injections, is it risky? Should I get botox now or not?

Botox and Pregnancy

It is not recommended to get Botox injections while pregnant. Discuss with your physician, but it may be best to stop while trying to conceive.

Botox prior to conception

Botox will be in your system for 3-4 months, so it's advisable not to get it done if you are actively trying to conceive a child.
