Tamoxifen is a teratogenic drug that is not used in pregnancy. But women can accidentally conceive on tamoxifen, if no proper contraception is used during its therapy. We present the cases of two young women who were on tamoxifen therapy for treatment of breast cancer, conceived and the pregnancy diagnosed at 20 weeks on a CT scan done surveillance and disease staging. These two women took tamoxifen in the first trimester and continued until pregnancy was diagnosed in the second trimester. Both had uncomplicated pregnancies, with no reported congenital abnormalities or other disorders for the babies.
