Is VigRX Plus Safe During Pregnancy?

The following active ingredients in VigRX Plus could potentially cause problems when taken during pregnancy:
 
  • Epimedium sagittatum extract (horny goat weed) -- May have testosterone-like activity, which could harm a developing fetus
 
  • Tribulus terrestris -- May increase testosterone levels; may negatively affect brain development (based on studies in sheep)
 
 
  • Ginseng -- May theoretically cause birth defects (based on animal studies of a certain compound in ginseng)
 
  • Saw palmetto -- Affects certain hormones and might cause abnormalities of the external genitalia of male fetuses.
     
For several of the other active ingredients, there is no information available that demonstrates they are either safe or unsafe during pregnancy.
