Propecia and Pregnancy

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

It appears that when Propecia is used by the male partner during pregnancy, no problems with the fetus will occur. This is based on data that looked at doses up to 250 times the amount of Propecia found in semen. These studies were conducted with monkeys, a species that closely resembles humans when looking at fetal development. As discussed above, however, if your partner is using Propecia, it is extremely important that you do not touch any broken or crushed Propecia tablets. Unbroken tablets are safe to touch because they have a protective coating.

Recommendations for Using Propecia During Pregnancy

First of all, Propecia for women has not been shown to be effective for controlling hair loss. Secondly, taking this medication during pregnancy can cause birth defects. Therefore, if you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, let your healthcare provider know immediately. You should not take this drug if you are or may become pregnant.
