Is it safe to take Ovral while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Ovral is classed as Pregnancy Category X by the FDA. This means it is not safe to use during pregnancy and could be harmful to an unborn baby. If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, stop taking Ovral and contact your doctor immediately. If you have just given birth within the last 3 months or suffered a miscarriage or abortion, you should consult your doctor about reliable forms of birth control and find out when it is safe to start using birth control containing estrogen.
Ovral passes into breast milk. This may affect milk production and may be harmful for a nursing infant. It is not recommended to take this medication while breastfeeding a baby.
