Frova and Pregnancy and Nursing

Taking Frova During Pregnancy — Category C

There are no adequate studies on the effects of Frova in pregnant women. In animals, pregnant animals treated with Frova had some babies with problems. That’s why you should only use Frova during pregnancy if the potential benefit is greater than the potential risk to your unborn child.

If you are pregnant, or think you might be pregnant, talk to your doctor about using Frova. You can also check to see if there is a pregnancy exposure registry for that medicine.

The Food and Drug Administration has a list of pregnancy exposure registries (http://www.fda.gov/womens/registries/default.htm) where pregnant women can find information.

Taking Frova While Breast Feeding

It is not known whether Frova is excreted in human milk.

Ask your doctor if you should avoid taking Frova while you are nursing your baby.
