Finasteride During Pregnancy

Can Finasteride Be Used by My Partner While I Am Pregnant?

It appears that when finasteride is used by the male partner during pregnancy, no problems with the fetus will occur as a result of finasteride. This is based on data that looked at doses up to 120 times the amount of finasteride found in semen. These studies were conducted in monkeys, a species that closely resembles humans when looking at fetal development. As discussed above, if your partner is using finasteride, it is extremely important that you do not touch any broken or crushed finasteride tablets. Unbroken tablets are safe because they have a protective coating.
