Data on a limited number of exposed pregnancies indicated no adverse effects of Femorum lnj. on pregnancy or on the health of the foetus/newborn child. No well-controlled studies in pregnant women are available to date. Animal studies do not indicate direct or indirect harmful effects with respect to pregnancy, embryonal/foetal development, parturition or postnatal development.
Nevertheless, risk/benefit evaluation is required.
Femorum lnjection should only be used in pregnant women in whom oral iron is ineffective or cannot be tolerated and the level of anaemia is judged sufficient to put the mother or foetus at risk.
Pregnancy first trimester: See Contraindications.
Non metabolised Femorum lnjection is unlikely to pass into the mother's milk. No well-controlled clinical studies are available to date. Animal studies do not indicate direct or indirect harmful effects to the nursing child.
