Men Home > Axiron and Pregnancy
As long as you both take appropriate measures, it is fine for your partner to use Axiron while you are pregnant. Keep in mind that you can be exposed to the drug through skin-to-skin contact with the area the product was applied, even for hours afterward.
For this reason, your partner should keep the application area covered with clothes in order to minimize contact. Axiron dries on the skin and slowly releases testosterone into the bloodstream all day long, until it is washed off. If you think you have been exposed to Axiron, wash the affected area immediately and thoroughly.
Axiron has not been approved for any use in women. Taking it during pregnancy can cause severe genital defects in female fetuses. Therefore, you should not take this drug if you are or may become pregnant. It is important to let your healthcare provider know right away if you have taken Axiron or been exposed to it during pregnancy.
