Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Extensive epidemiological studies have revealed neither an increased risk of birth defects in children born to women who used COCs prior to pregnancy, nor a teratogenic effect when COCs were taken inadvertently during early pregnancy. (See also Contraindications.)
Lactation may be influenced by COCs as they may reduce the quantity and change the composition of breast milk, therefore, the use of COCs should generally not be recommended until the nursing mother has completely weaned her child. Small amounts of the contraceptive steroids and/or their metabolites may be excreted with the milk but there is no evidence that this adversely affects infant health.
