It is important that women taking Methitest report any signs of virilization (development of male characteristics) to their healthcare providers right away. If the drug is stopped soon, the virilization may be at least partially reversible. If it is stopped later, the virilization may be permanent. However, you and your healthcare provider may decide for you to keep taking Methitest, despite virilization, if the benefits to you are significant.
